Saturday smells like... Huevos con chorizo

Lest you think that breakfast is always a high-carb sweet treat (a la Tuesday's post), J also whipped up a fabulous highly savory breakfast treat for us this week.

Huevos con chorizo

Start with a pound of chorizo; brown and drain. Put a small portion (as J says, 'about as much as you'd think') back in your frying pan. (When it is completely cool, put the rest of the chorizo in a plastic bag to use later--I like to use it on nachos!)

Crack three eggs into a small bowl; add salt and pepper; whisk together and pour into the frying pan with your chorizo. Scramble together over medium heat until eggs are cooked to your liking. Remove from heat.

Heat corn tortillas in your frying pan (I think I mentioned before that I really prefer soft corn tortillas to flour tortillas, and at least in my own mind, they are healthier for you, too!). We heated six.

Put together soft tacos, using your egg/chorizo mix, grated cheddar cheese and salsa (we like the kind my mom and J's sister make, using tomato, onion, jalapeno and something vinegar-y--it's much lighter than picante sauce). We had three each and were full!

Hope you enjoy our take on a tex-mex classic!
