8 ounces Mexican-style chorizo (see Tip), casings removed
1 large onion, chopped
2 poblano peppers, chopped
1 tablespoon canola oil (optional)
6 5- to 6-inch corn tortillas, torn into bite-size pieces
1 32-ounce carton liquid egg substitute, such as Egg Beaters
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
Fresh salsa for serving (optional)
Cook chorizo, onion and peppers in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the chorizo is cooked and the vegetables are softened, 6 to 9 minutes. Remove to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
Discard all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pan; if there is no fat in the pan, add 1 tablespoon canola oil. Add the tortillas and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until beginning to brown and lightly crisp, 4 to 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk egg substitute, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Once the tortillas are browned, add the egg mixture and the reserved chorizo mixture to the pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are set, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cilantro. Serve with salsa and more cilantro, if desired.

Cooking is my outlet. I love the creative process of integrating complimentary flavors and ingredients and the result being a dish I can only describe as culinary magic. Since I can remember, I’ve been in the kitchen. The fondest memories of my beloved grandmother Corina, are food-centered whether helping with Sunday dinner and holiday meals or watching Julia Roberts and Jacques Pepin. I feel closer to her each time I’m in the kitchen with my daughter. sees
