Chorizo Casserole

So, I got the original recipe for this fantastic dish from PaleOMG.  If you haven't checked out her blog - you should!!  She has great recipes and will make you laugh out loud!  I changed it up just a bit for my taste and was not ready for how amazing this tasted.  We like to make it on Sunday and warm it up for breakfast during the week.  So good!!

Chorizo Casserole
1 lb. chorizo
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chili
1 sweet potato, peeled/diced
6 eggs
1 T. oil of choice
1 t. paprika
2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. dried oregano
1 t. onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
Heat up large skillet over medium heat.  Add fat and sweet potatoes and chorizo.  Break up chorizo with spoon/spatula and mix around with sweet potatoes.  Cover to steam sweet potatoes.  Let cook for 6-8 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Add spices and mix together.  Pour hash into 9x13 baking dish.  Use spoon to press dents into hash to create pockets for eggs.  Crack eggs directly on top of hash.  Bake at 375º for 10 minutes (or however long you want to get the eggs to the doneness you desire).


  1. I've been having chorizo at least once a week because it's easy and fast to cook and I usually add extra vegetables besides the eggs, like onions, zucchini, spinach. I just wonder by adding the sweet potatoes that it would change the flavor too much...guess I'll have to try it to find out, huh? It definitely looks yummy with the eggs on top like that - reminds me of enchiladas with the egg on top!

    1. This is an amazing meal. You will love it! And the sweet potatoes don't change the flavor too much, they make it even better! :)
