Chorizo is a well-seasoned pork sausage that is much looser than traditional sausage. It’s packed with smoky and spicy flavor that goes well with a variety of food. One of the best things about it is it takes less than 10 minutes to fully cook, which makes it a great component of this simple dish.

Yields 4 Servings of Chorizo Baked Eggs


🛡 2 ounces Mexican style pork chorizo

🛡 2 tablespoons butter

🛡 5 large eggs

🛡 Salt and pepper to taste

🛡 2/3 cups shredded pepper jack cheese

🛡 1 medium avocado

🛡 2 tablespoons sour cream

🛡 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, optional garnish


*This can be made in any oven-safe skillet or baking dish.




1. Preheat oven to 400F. Place a pan over medium heat then remove the casing from the chorizo. Add the chorizo to an oven-safe skillet and fry for 7-10 minutes or until fully cooked. Drain well, set aside.


2. Place a cast iron skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Let it melt then remove the pan from the heat, and place on top of a towel or oven mitt. Alternatively, melt butter in a microwave and pour into the skillet. Make sure the inside of the pan is evenly coated with butter.


3. Crack eggs open directly into the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


4. Place several dollops of chorizo on top of the eggs.


5. Sprinkle cheese evenly on top of the dish then bake.


6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling. If you like runnier yolks in your eggs, bake them for less time.  Serve warm with the avocado, sour cream, and garnished with cilantro if desired.
