Ingredients

  • 1 lb Recipe Essentials Chorizo
  • 1/2 large Yellow Onion thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Red Bell Peppers sliced
  • 2 Jalapeños diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2.5 cups Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Cherry Tomatoes sliced in half
  • 2.5 cups Shredded Cheese
  • 12 large Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Heat a 12-in cast iron skillet to medium high heat
  • Add the Hatfield Recipe Essentials Chorizo and brown for 5 minutes (the meat won’t be fully done cooking - we’ll finish it during baking).
  • Remove the Chorizo from the pan so as not to overcook it and set aside.
  • Add the yellow onions, bell peppers, jalapeños, and garlic to the pan and sautée them in the chorizo fat until the onions are translucent. You can add 1 additional tbsp of olive oil if you need more fat to sauté the vegetables.
  • Add the spinach, salt and black pepper to the pan. Cook the spinach for a few minutes until it’s bright green and wilted. Turn off the heat.
  • Add chorizo back to the pan. Use a rubber spatula to evenly disperse the meat and vegetables.
  • Add the shredded cheese to the top.
  • Cover the shredded cheese with the beaten eggs. Use the rubber spatula to spread the eggs evenly. Sprinkle the cherry tomatoes on top. 
  • Put the pan in the oven and cook for 12-14 minutes, or until the center is set. You can turn the oven to the broil setting and cook for 1 additional minute to add a golden color to the top.
