Cheesy Chorizo and Apple Scramble

Cheesy Chorizo and Apple Scramble in bowlI made this up today when I realized I had next to nothing in the kitchen. Last week, the grocery store was giving away free tubes of chorizo. I rarely say no to free things, even when it's something I don't utilize too much. I always find chorizo to be a bit overpowering in spice and saltiness, so I thought evening it out with some chopped apple would aid it. It was perfect! The sweetness of the apple was a great balance for this breakfast treat. I added little squares of the last tortilla I had in the fridge to make it come together like a taco. It was so very good!

Yummm :)

I'd like a dish of that for breakfast please, hehehehe

I've never thought of putting apple with chorizo, and I can just about taste it in my "minds eye" as they say, and I love it!

Thank you Attosa!! :)

(have to tell you, hubby and I were just talking about Chorizo)
because it's been awhile since we've eaten it, and we like it a lot,
but as you said it is a bit overpowering - so the apple added, oh yes, that's the way to go!

I actually thought of you when I bit into this. I thought, "Okay, Suz would totally approve!" You should try it when you get the chance. The chorizo and apple really go well together.


The other option would be something like a potato but I dug the sweetness of the apple! :) I love how you two were just talking about chorizo, too!
