I made this last night for dinner. All I can say is WOW. I crumbled up the chorizo as I was cooking it and only used 1 jalapeno because I was afraid it would be too hot for us. It really wasn't so next time I will try 1 1/2 peppers. This dish has lots of jazz and pizazz. My husband and I were delighted. Thanks JoAnn

JoAnn, this was wonderful! Yesterday, at the grocery store, I had brought some chorizo. My parents had told me about going to the house of a close Mexican friend of theirs who made a breakfast using eggs and chorizo. When I went on a search of something similiar, I found your recipe, and it was delicious. I added some tomatoes to the egg mixture, and topped it with sour cream. Next time, I would like to add nopalitos to it. Thank you for a yummy recipe.
