Directions

  1. Break eggs into a bowl; add in cream, salt, and pepper.
  2. Whisk just long enough to combine; set aside.
  3. Add the chorizo to a 10-inch skillet over medium heat.
  4. Fry until well browned and cooked, breaking it into small pieces with a spatula as it cooks.
  5. Add enough butter to the drippings to make about 2 tablespoons of fat.
  6. When the butter is melted, add in the hominy and heat through.
  7. Scoop out about ½ cup of the hominy mixture and reserve; lower the heat to med-low.
  8. Pour in the egg mixture; cook 3-4 minutes, frequently stirring up from the bottom with a spatula, until the eggs form soft curds and are lightly set but still look a little runny (do not overcook).
  9. Remove from the heat and stir an additional time or two.
  10. Top each portion with some of the reserved hominy; serve immediately.
