  • 1 pound Mexican chorizo or longaniza casings removed, chopped
  • 1 cup corn kernels fresh or thawed from frozen
  • 1 to 2 jalapeños stemmed and sliced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large white onion halved and slivered
  • ¾ pound Yukon Gold or russet potatoes peeled and grated
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or coarse sea salt or to taste, divided
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 eggs

To Prepare

  • In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, cook the chorizo for about 3 to 4 minutes, breaking it into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon, until it starts to crisp and brown. Add the corn and jalapeños, stirring to coat in the rendered chorizo fat, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the jalapeños soften and corn begins to brown. Scrape the chorizo, corn, and jalapeños into a bowl and set aside.
  • Pour the olive oil into the same skillet and reduce heat to medium. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, until they are completely wilted and their edges have begun to brown. Incorporate the potatoes, add ½ teaspoon salt and pepper and continue to cook, stirring frequently, for another 15 minutes, until the potatoes are completely cooked and mixture has browned a bit more. Incorporate the chorizo, corn and jalapeño mixture.
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Pour over potato and chorizo mixture and cook, stirring to give it your desired scrambled texture and until it cooks to your liking. I like my eggs soft cooked, not runny, but not dry, which takes about 3 to 4 minutes. Serve while hot.

    I have a question. Can the jalapeño be swaped with green bell pepper? I have chronic asthma and jalapeño is not an option.

    This was DELICIOUS! I made the rojo corn tortillas with it and salsa Verde! It was a very filling breakfast for myself and my husband.

    I really enjoy watching your program. I am definitely going to try this along with your Orange and piloncillo adobo pork roast. I tried the chorizo bacon bean recipe and the family loved it so I feel they will love these as well

    Made this for lunch today, and as expected it was very nice. Especially with homemade corn tortillas and salsa verde. I did a couple of substitutions: half a pound of gound pork mixed with half a pound of chorizo, to lessen the level of heat (in our old age we no longer do well with a lot of heat); and in place of the potatoes (which I don’t eat), I used jicama. For us this recipe made at least 6 servings. It’s a definite keeper recipe. I probably won’t make it often because of the amount of time and effort it takes, but I would definitely make it again (probably a half recipe, to make it fit our lives better). I’m definitely glad I tried this. Thank you for inspiring me.

    Hola Pati! Nunca había probado los huevos con chorizo de esta manera, nos encantó a toda la familia. También prepare la salsa verde con piquín y estaba regia.

    When you say mexican chorizo is it pork or beef chorizo? Haven’t been able to find soy chorizo which I prefer😞

      Traditionally Mexican chorizo is made out of pork Maria 🙂

    Does jalapeños have to be cook in water first to soften?

    1. Pati Jinich

      Nov 02

      Not at all Lupe, just throw them raw in the skillet 🙂

    Made this dish this morning because I was in the mood for a hearty breakfast and I happened to have all the ingredients on hand. It’s absolutely delicious! I’m a long-time vegetarian, so instead of Mexican chorizo I used Trader Joe’s soy chorizo and frozen roasted corn. I don’t like my eggs too soft, so I put the pan under the broiler for a few minutes to ‘set’ the eggs. It turned out into a large frittata, sort of, and then you can cut it into eighths or fourths, depending on how many people you’re serving. Thanks for this relatively easy and tasty recipe!

      Great idea Carina, liking the broiler part a lot so I may try it next time 😉

    Hello! I’m looking for an easy to prepare “in advance” recipe for a family brunch. Do you think most of this can be prepared a day in advance without adding the eggs until time to serve.

    Thank you!!!

      That would be a perfect idea Mary!

    My mom and dad own a bakery call la farma and we used to make pan Blanco and every 2 hours we would eat chorizo and eggs with Papa’s and Chile rancho on the side and avocado all that reminds me of my mom and dad they’re from Chihuahua Mexico
