I'm making them for dinner tonight for my folks. I'll try for the Manchego or Oaxaca if they're available.

Those recipes sound really good.

I don't measure anything but here's my recipe:

Dice and fry potatoes and onions in a skiller with olive oil.
Scramble eggs and add to potato and onions.
Mix in chorozo, along with grated parmesan cheese and rose mary.
Mix all ingredients well in skillet and fry until done.

Delicious!!!!!!!!!!!

Lifesaver, I could eat that every day (well, as long as my arteries held up). Sounds delicious!

The mixture is also good made as a burrito.

First when done drain well and plase desired amount of mixture on a warm flour tortilla and fold into burrito. Mmmm Good!

Well, in looking at the original recipe in the initial post, it was a blend of Spanish and Italian. It looked OK.

Personally, I would rather have a good Mexican chorizo, brown it up, remove it from the pan, cook some finely diced potatoes in the resulting sausage drippings, then some onions and mushrooms. Add the sausage back to the pan, then pour in the scrambled egg mixture and make myself an omelette. Once it's rolled onto my plate, top it with some salsa verde and some queso fresco.

Karen, I am really envious of your ready access to many different kinds of chorizo. I've tried a few of the locally-made bulk product in a couple carnecerias, and find that the white vinegar is just a little to strong for my taste. I had a really good homemade chorizo up in Michigan (of all places!) that used red wine vinegar in the sausage. I need to get a copy of that recipe, and I'll start making my own chorizo at home.

It is one of the real advantages of living here...who knew there were so many kinds? I ordered chorizo quesadillas in a restaurant the other day, and it was fresh ground chorizo, very savory and good. The supermarket I use is close to a resort area (Nuevo Vallarta) and so I often encounter confused "gringos" wandering around wondering what to buy and I try to help them if I can - hey, that was me a few years ago. I was at the meat counter awhile back looking at all the kinds of chorizo, and two guys walked up behind me. One of them said "that stuff looks pretty good, but if we eat it, will it kill us?" I turned around and told them to look around them at all the very healthy looking Mexicans shopping and working there. "This is what THEY eat - you should have some too!" They bought some (I hoped they realized they had to cook it...)
