Tips  

Chorizo, a coarsely ground pork sausage highly seasoned with garlic, chili powder and other spices, is widely used in Mexican and Spanish cooking. Spicy pork sausage can be used in this recipe instead of the chorizo.

This recipe can also be made in a cast-iron skillet as directed. Don't have an ovenproof skillet? Bake in a greased or sprayed 13x9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until egg mixture is set and crust is deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
