      Absolutely delicious! I had a single fresh chorizo sausage in the freezer so thawed it out and got two large servings from it (3 eggs each). Didn't measure the spices just added what looked good. The chorizo I had was pretty lean so I ended up having to add a little butter (1 Tbsp) to make up for the lack of fat. Thanks for sharing! P.S. The previous reviewer must have used Spanish smoked chorizo instead of the fresh Mexican chorizo which does indeed crumble after the casing is removed :)
