Chorizo and Egg Tostado

I love Chorizo. If you haven’t had it, you’re missing out! Tons of flavor! Chorizo is a highly seasoned ground pork sausage. Mexican Chorizo, which is what I am using here, is made with fresh, raw pork. It is seasoned with chile peppers and paprika. The flavor is intense and amazing!

You can make your own Chorizo at home. I haven’t done that yet but I would like to! I found a recipe I would like to try. It’s on The Spruce Eats blog. Click here to check it out!

I made this for dinner last night. It is one of our favorites. It is just so pretty with all those veggies in the pan!!

This is one of my favorite ways to have Chorizo.
