LOVE chorizo!! Searched for some recipes with chorizo on here and didn't want a casserole or bake. This one fit the build. As some of the other reviewers said it had some fresh ingredients which is important to me. I made several of these for a brunch with friends and was nervous trying a new recipe but everyone loved it...love when that happens!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the chorizo and use a spoon to break it up and cook it until it is cooked through (approximately 8-10 minutes).
  2. In another skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Form hash browns into 6 small, flat rounds and place in hot pan. Cook hash brown cakes until golden and crispy (about 5-6 minutes), flip, and repeat on the other side.
  3. While hash brown cakes are cooking, prep fresh ingredients by slicing onion into 1/8 inch rounds and slicing avocado into 1/8 inch thick strips.
  4. Place hash brown cakes onto serving platter, spoon a generous portion of chorizo over the cakes, top with a few onion rounds and 3-4 strips of avocado. Serve immediately.
