Nothing smelled better on a Saturday morning than my mom’s Chorizo con Huevos. As an adult I would come home on a weekend or during the holidays and it was the warm aromas of the spicy chorizo that took me right back to my childhood. 

 Chorizo con Huevos - Latinofoodie

It’s a simple recipe but one every good home cook who wants to have a traditional Mexican breakfast should learn to master. Another similar dish is Chorizo con Papas

For the Chorizo con Huevos recipe you can omit the jalapeños. I like the added heat to the dish. 

Yield: 4 servings


Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 white onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 1 package (9 ounce) pork chorizo (we prefer Cacique brand)
  • 8 eggs, scrambled


  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat add the oil and onions. Saute the onions for about 3-5 minutes until softened.
  2. Add the jalapenos and cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Lower the heat to medium low.
  4. Add the chorizo and break up into chunks with the back of a wooden spoon.
  5. Cook the chorizo until it softens and add the scrambled eggs.
  6. Cook the egg and chorizo mixture for another 5 to 10 minutes until done.
  7. Serve with a side of refried beans and warm tortillas.
