Ingredients

  • 1 Lb Ground chorizo
  • 1 Large pepper, thinly sliced and cubed
  • 1/2 Cup Onion, diced
  • 1 tsp Ground cumin
  • 1 1/3 Cups Salsa, of choice
  • 10 Large eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Milk, of choice (i used unsweetened almond)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas, Cut into quarters
  • 2 Cups Mexican cheese, grated
  • Avocado, For garnish
  • Cilantro, For garnish

Instructions

  • Heat your oven to 350 degrees and Heat a large skillet on medium high heat. Cook the chorizo, breaking it up until its about 3/4 of the way cooked. Drain the grease.
  • Add in the pepper, onion and cumin and cook until soft and the chorizo is golden brown, about 5 minutes or so.
  • Stir in the salsa.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and salt.

To assemble

  • Place half of the tortilla quarters on the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Then, spread half the chorizo mix over, followed by pouring over half the egg mix and then sprinkle half the cheese on top. Repeat.
  • Cover with tinfoil and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the eggs are set. At the end, you can uncover and cook for 10-15 minutes if the eggs don't seem to be setting up.
  • Garnish and DEVOUR!
