This may not look like much but this is an amazing dinner and super fast. It's a recipe that one of the women that Den works with told him about. It's Mexican sausage(Chorizo) with eggs(huevos) and cactus(nopales). Yeah, I know you are thinking that cactus sounds a bit odd and I did too. But this is over the top, yummy. And its easy to make. Its my kind of meal.
Chorizo comes in tubes. Cook one tube according to the directions and then push it off to one side of the pan. Scramble your eggs.
The most important part of this recipe is to really drain the cactus well. I pour out as much as I can and then I set it upside down on a plate while I'm cooking the sausage and the eggs. If there is too much liquid added to the eggs and sausage, it gets runny and doesn't work so well on tortillas.
As with any of the recipes that I post-I'm not even good enough to be considered an amateur cook. Follow my recipes at your own risk!
1 tube chorizo
1 jar nopales
Cook the chorizo according to the package and push to the side of pan. Scramble the eggs on the empty side of the pan until completely cooked. Add the very well drained nopales to the pan and mix everything very well. Serve on tortillas.
Cheap, easy and yummy just like me!
