Chorizo sautéing with veggies

  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Put a medium-size saute pan on the stove, medium-high heat. Add your standard starter. Once the pan is hot (don’t start cooking on a cold pan) add the onions, garlic, and poblano. Saute for 4 minutes.
  4. Add the chorizo to the pan. Break it apart with a spoon and combine with the veggies. Let cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  5. Add chorizo and veggies to the bowl with the potatoes. Mix everything together adding salt & pepper.
  6. Crack the eggs in to a mixing bowl and add the cream (or milk). Whisk together.
  7. Put the chorizo and potato mixture into a 12” oven-safe pan. Pour the egg mixture over it. Bake for 12 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle cheese over the tortilla and bake until cheese is melted.
  9. Serve and enjoy.
