Chorizo...yes, please! This is such a great combination for breakfast but I don't think it needs the hot sauce since the chorizo is generally spicy on its own. I was thinking how about trying a poached or fried egg instead of the scrambled and adding some hashbrowns and whatever meat you prefer...then the egg can ooze into everything and be extra amazing. Or what about Denver omelet ingredients inside? This recipe is so versatile and perfect to customize for the pickiest of eaters in your family.

I wasn't expecting much flavor from these, but they were full of flavor! I'll definitely be making these for future breakfasts.

These were fantastic! Tasty, filling and full of my favorite flavors, I will want to have these for breakfast every day!

LOVED these. It had just the right balance of cheese, eggs, and meat, and I loved having a refreshing slice of avocado on top (and of course plenty of sour cream). This is an excellent recipe for brunch with friends.

I would eat these every day for breakfast if I could! It's the prefect combination of meat, cheese, and egg -- definitely a hearty meal to start off your day right!

Love the chorizo! It's everything I want in a breakfast on the go!
