Scrambled Eggs with Chorizo Recipe

This scrambled egg breakfast can also be served for lunch or dinner with a tossed salad or green vegetable such as steamed spinach. You can replace the baked tortillas with tortilla chips, if you like. —Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts

"What a good dinner! There were only a few ingredients, which allowed each flavor to shine. I did not use the picante sauce; I just added an extra tomato and let the juices be the sauce. I used spicy Italian sausage, but next time I will try it with chorizo.

I was a charter subscriber of Cooking for 2. Although I can easily pare down almost any recipe to serve two people, I still miss that magazine!"
