Huevos and Chorizo

Josh is home for the weekend so I get to feed a man.  Fixing Huevos and Chorizo (eggs and sausage).  Eddie used to love this too.  We would eat it the way I was taught in Milwaukee with no utensils.  We would just tear a piece of tortilla and pick it up that way.  Back then it was hard to find Chorizo in Maquoketa so we would make our own by adding a packet of taco mix to ground pork and fry it up.  It has been a very common dish for all of us ever since.  Here is my simple recipe.

1 pound of chorizo
6 eggs
1 cup of Mexican blend shredded cheese
Pinch of Kosher salt and pepper
Flour tortillas

Fry your sausage until it is completely done.  Put on paper towel and drain all the grease.

Clean the pan out with a paper towel to get rid of the grease. 

Scrabble your eggs well and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Add a bit of oil (I used olive oil) to pre-heated pan.  Pour in your eggs, sausage and cheese and stir until mixture is almost dry. 

Take off the heat and let it finish cooking.  You don’t want the eggs too dry or over done.

Put your tortillas in the microwave and heat just until warm.  If you are only putting in 3 or 4 it should only take 15 or 20 seconds. 

You can either serve the tortillas on the side and make it an experience by tearing it apart into pieces and using it to pick up your huevos (eggs) or you can roll up the huevos and chorizo mixture in the tortilla and make a breakfast burrito.  You can add a bit more cheese before rolling it up. 

These save beautifully in the refrigerator and you can microwave them for breakfast the next day.  You can also freeze them and send them in a lunch for a person that has access to a microwave. 

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
