    1. 1
      Cook the chorizo sausage in a big skillet over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until browned; break sausage up so that it is crumbled.
    2. 2
      Add in green onions and garlic; saute/stir for 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender; at this point, I drain some of the excess drippings.

    4. 4
      Lower heat to medium; Add egg mixture to skillet; let set for 20 seconds.

      Add cheese and cilantro; stir to blend.
    7. 7
      Transfer mixture to serving plates or use as filling for a flour tortilla; add a dollop of sour cream on top if desired.

      Very tasty recipe. I cut it back to 2 eggs. The chorizo that I used was locally made and smoked. The chirizo & the cilantro gave the eggs a bit off color but they were still delicious. I used laughing cow Lite & parsley Gouda lite cheeses. A definited do again recipe
