Scrambled eggs and breakfast sausage can get a little boring from time to time. But, we have a great way to spice up breakfast, literally. Chorizo is a spicy sausage used a lot in Mexican dishes. Because of the spices, it has a red tint to it while cooking. Mixed with eggs and cheese, it makes a great breakfast dish that can be served any time of day and is even great wrapped in a flour tortilla! We like to brown the chorizo in an electric skillet for this Chorizo Breakfast Scramble recipe, but you can also use a frying pan or skillet.
