This Chorizo Potato and Egg Breakfast Skillet is another breakfast of champions. It’s made in a cast-iron skillet with crispy potatoes, chorizo sausage, and eggs smothered in melted cheese. This Mexican recipe is the ultimate cast iron breakfast skillet.

Chorizo is a Mexican-style sausage that comes uncooked so you’ll have to fully cook it. Start by removing the casing and breaking it apart with your spatula when cooking it. Add the potatoes and eggs then cover with the cheese for a delicious breakfast meal.

Use the Chorizo Potato and Eggs to fill flour tortillas for a breakfast burrito or put in a corn tortilla for breakfast tacos and garnish with salsa and cilantro.
