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!

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

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

My husband makes this all the time, his Grandma taught him how to do it. Only difference is that he uses corn tortillas instead of flour. Its delicious

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!
