Recipe by quotFoodThe Way To

Chorizo is a spicy Mexican sausage that can be found in most grocery stores in the West or Southwest. We had this for breakfast at our best friends' home, Forrest. It was wonderful, as usual! He always spoils us when we stay overnight.

Excellent recipe!! We are big fans of chorizo and eggs, so this was right up our ally. Loved the way this cooked up and so easy. A couple much garlic and oil? I did enough oil to cover the pan and one clove of minced garlic and it turned out fine. I also microwaved the potato and diced/peeled it to save time and it turned out great. This would be great with some tortillas on the side :) Thanks for the great recipe!!
