Chorizo Con Huevos

A favorite of mine is Mexican chorizo, the fresh-sausage version of the spicy cured sausage Spanish favorite. It's great in a queso dip, a quesadilla or burrito...but best of all in eggs for breakfast.

Honestly, I did little (like none) research and I have no idea if this is close to authentic, but it tasted right. This is SO good for breakfast.

Chorizo Con Huevos:
(serves 6-8, but chorizo can be frozen and used as needed)

1 lb ground pork (finely ground or twice-ground, ask, it's important)
4 dried guajillo chilis
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion
Salt and pepper
2-3 tbs apple cider vinegar
Hot water as needed
1 tbs sugar
Salt and pepper

Eggs, beaten lightly with 1 tbs of water per egg

Blend all ingredients (except pork, s&p and eggs) in a blender or food processor until finely blended. Meanwhile, saute pork in a saute pan with salt and pepper until lightly browned. Add pepper mixture and simmer until all liquid is reduced and sausage begins to brown and crust.

Pour egg mixture over sausage and toss, turning off heat just before eggs firm entirely. Serve with beans, tortillas and hot sauce as needed.
