    Hunkle's Note:

    My family and I love this frittata. I make this quite often for Sunday brunch with my Quick and Easy Churros. I hope you enjoy it as well.

    1. 1
      Thoroughly mash the tater-tots in a zip-loc bag.
    2. 2
      Heat the olive oil in a 10-inch oven safe skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and chorizo and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    3. 3
      Add the mashed tater-tots, garlic and red pepper and cook until potatoes are heated through.
    4. 4
      Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Gently mix the chorizo/potato mixture with the eggs as they begin to set.
    5. 5
      Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook the frittata until the eggs are almost completely set through.
    6. 6
      Use a spatula to ensure the egg mixture is not sticking to the skillet before placing the pan in the broiler. Broil on medium for 2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Remove the pan from the heat. Invert the frittata onto a platter or large plate and spread the shredded cheese over the top.
    8. 8
      Lightly cover the frittata with aluminum foil and let it rest for a couple of minutes.
    9. 9
      Remove foil and garnish with sliced avocado, salsa, sliced scallions and the sprigs of cilantro then serve.

      We thoroughly enjoy this recipe. We've made this a few times already & each time we try abit of something different. Such as sub'ng breakfast sausage for the chorizo, hashbrowns for taters & all or part with egg beaters (to make 1 cup @ 3-4 servings). We don't care much for cilantro so I just added abit of dried cilantro to the eggs. For even more flavour, I usually add a dash of hot sauce also. We love the avocado & jalapeno, thanks for sharing.

      Love the creative use of tater tots in this! This was a perfect Sunday morning breakfast -- I typically make huevos Mexicana con chorizo for DH in the morning, but this was a nice change of pace using similar ingredients in a different form. The only change I made here was to use roasted red jalapenos in place of the roasted red sweet peppers because DH prefers spicy stuff. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 09
