- ½ pound of fresh chorizo, or you can use bulk spicy pork sausage
- 3 medium tomatoes, chopped up
- 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped up
- 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, chopped up
- 1 medium onion, chopped up
- 4 large eggs
- 2 small zucchini, chopped up
- 2 garlic cloves
- Make sure they are minced
- ½ cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon of paprika
- ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- Skillet with a top
- A spoon
The first step to this great breakfast skillet is to place the large skillet on the stove and turn the heat up to medium. Add the chorizo, the red and yellow peppers, and onion. Cook these ingredients for 4 to 6 minutes, making sure the chorizo is fully cooked. You want to make sure that it is broken into pieces/crumbles once it is fully cooked. This will make the chorizo easier to distribute throughout the mixture. The next step is to actually strain the ingredients in the skillet. There will be excess grease, so make sure to get rid of it before adding the next set of ingredients.
The third step is to add the tomatoes, zucchini, and garlic or your choice of veggies. Mix all of the ingredients together in the skillet. Add the 1 teaspoon of paprika, stirring once again to make sure everything is distributed evenly. You should then cover the skillet and cook everything for 5 to 7 minutes, it could take longer. Make sure to check and see if the vegetables are tender to know if they are cooked enough.
The last cooking step is to take the spoon and make wells in the mixture. Four wells to be exact. Once the wells are made, take an egg and break it into each well. This is where the salt and pepper should be added. Feel free to add any other seasoning you desire. Cover the skillet again and cook the eggs for 4 to 6 minutes. You want the eggs whites to set completely, but the yolks should just be thick. They should not be hard.
Remove the breakfast skillet from the heat. Take the ½ cup of cheddar cheese and sprinkle it on top of the skillet. Cover the skillet again so the cheese will melt.
Buy tortillas to use to make breakfast wraps. It makes it an easy to-go breakfast and you can prepare them in advance.
You can substitute the chorizo for regular breakfast sausage if spicy food isn’t your favorite in a breakfast skillet.
Make for dinner and serve with biscuits. Use the biscuits to get every last bite.
