I doubled this to make four servings. I made this whole dish in my cast iron skillet--very simple, quite tasty. I served it with homemade salsa and a little reduced fat sour cream. My family LOVED this breakfast egg dish. My husband and I especially loved the combination of chorizo and pepperjack cheese, my kids just loved the whole thing. It's seriously an easier version of breakfast burritoes!

Delicious - perfect to split with my husband! Clean-up was a breeze with this one pan breakfast. I add just a little milk to the eggs to get them nice and fluffy and added a little garlic and onion powders for additional flavor. I used a light Mexican blend cheese and topped it with a little homemade salsa and a dollup of reduced fat sour cream - YUM! Thanks for another great recipe Chef John!

Really yummy. I used homemade chorizo, reduced fat mexican cheese and egg whites. Added a few red pepper flakes to compensate for not having pepperjack

It was lacking flavor. I was expecting to like this more.

Comida bueno! (Good meal!)If you like Tex-Mex flavor, you'll like this easy, quick breakfast dish. Substituted spring onions for chives, and I also used corn tortillas. Garnished with sour cream and a few reserved tortilla strips. Another fabulous recipe from Chef John! I'll make it again!
