"A tough heavy skillet is the perfect host for a rugged egg breakfast with New Mexican staples, chorizo sausage, tomato, onion, and of course…green chiles," says Sharon Bishop of Paleo Fondue.


  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup of cooked Chorizo Sausage, chopped
  • 1 4oz can of Green Chile, drained
  • 1 small Tomato, drained and diced
  • 1 small Onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 teaspoon of Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon of Fresh Cilantro Leaves
  • 1 Avocado for Garnish
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cooking Fat (coconut oil or lard)
  • (optional) ¼ cup of Greek Yogurt or Cheese


Step 1

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Whisk the eggs, salt, pepper, and yogurt together. Use a stand mixer's whisk set to high speed for best results.

Step 2

  • Heat a cast iron skillet (10.25") to medium and add the cooking fat. Add the onion and cook for about 1 minute.

Step 3

  • Ensure the tomato and chiles are free of excess liquid; drain and/or blot with paper towel.

Step 4

  • Add the tomato, chiles, and sausage into the skillet and cook for about 2-3 more minutes. Pour in the beaten eggs and mix so all the meat and veggies are well distributed.

Step 5

  • Sprinkle the top surface with chopped cilantro. Let cook on medium for about 3 minutes until the egg on the rim start to firm.

Step 6

  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake at 375 for 10-13 minutes until eggs are set.
