Waking up in the morning should never be a dull affair rather, it should be the start of something great, right? Anything with a copious amount of Mexican chorizo is definitely exciting. See where I’m going here? why not start your day with a zesty punch of flavors that will keep you going all day long. (Or at least until lunch time.)
This dish was directly inspired by my friend Ben at What’s Cooking and his recipe for Huevos a la Mexicana. One look at that glorious image and I wanted something similar as soon as I could get it cooked. Trust me guys, this is the good stuff right here.
My version relied on what I had hanging out in the house. I’d bought some Mexican chorizo and Anaheim peppers a few days before they definitely fit, so in they went. I had some salsa and I always have cilantro, tomatoes and seasoning blend vegetable mix in my freezer, so I was on my way to a dish that I’ll most definitely make again. Quick, simple and incredibly delicious. This South American breakfast scramble is sure to brighten your day, whether you eat if for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

What I would have done differently with this breakfast scramble:
The chorizo in this recipe wants to turn everything in sight a ruddy red color, so next time I think I’ll cook the eggs separately and fold together at the last-minute for prettier eggs. Aside from that, if you like the flavor of the chorizo oil in the eggs, this is perfection.
This was amazing just as described, but could definitely benefit from additions like avocado. Feel free to mix it up. Since this is a dish that begs for substitution, just try what you’ve got on hand and I’m sure you’ll end up with a winner!
This would be a great centerpiece for a weekend brunch. I’d always rather have spicy than sweet for breakfast!
All this breakfast needs is a Bloody Mary to wash it down. I am truly salivating over my laptop right now.
I am lovin’ the look of your blog! Clean, easy to read and mouthwatering. You still rock!
I knowwit! I’ve never understood the desire for a mountain of syrup-topped pastry in the morning. I just want coffee and a good pork chop or a steak with an egg…
It’s definitely worth the effort, though I think next time I’ll use Portuguese or Spanish Chorizo
My daughter and son in law eat Mexican at least 4 times a week. Need to send this recipe to them. Hopefully they’ll invite me over when it’s ready on the table!!
