My husband makes the best chorizo and eggs. His trick is adding a little vinegar to the chorizo. It adds a nice zing to the eggs. I lightened his recipe using egg whites and serving it on a low point tortilla. You could also add minced onions and red peppers to the eggs if you wish, but I tried to stick to his original recipe. This is delicious served with hot sauce.

Chorizo is a Spanish pork sausage seasoned with paprika, which gives it it’s distinct taste. If you can’t find chorizo, Portuguese Linguica sausage is similar in taste. A little goes a long way for flavor.
