Spicy Chorizo Egg Muffins
Gather all necessary ingredients.
Dice red bell pepper and onion.
If you have a block of cheese, finely shred it. Skip this step if you are using pre-shredded cheese.
Heat large skillet on medium heat, add chorizo, bell peppers, and onions to the pan.
Cook the chorizo and vegetables until the meat is browned - about 12 minutes.
Spread a paper towel over a baking sheet and pour the meat mixture onto the pan to drain any excess grease.
Evenly spoon the meat mixture into a greased muffin pan. Each muffin cup will be filled about halfway up.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs using a whisk or a fork.
Pour the eggs over the meat mixture in the muffin pan - approximately 1/3 cup of egg in each muffin cup.
Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over each muffin cup.
Bake egg muffins for 18 to 22 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick into each muffin comes out clean, with no egg.
Top egg muffins with your favorite salsa for some added freshness and serve!
