Smoked Chorizo Breakfast Bowls with California

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Line a small sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the potatoes, salt, garlic powder, paprika and half of the olive oil.
  3. Add potato mixture to the lined sheet pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and tender.
  4. In a small non-stick skillet, cook the chorizo on medium-high heat until cooked through and slightly crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  5. In the same skillet used to cook the chorizo, add spinach and cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly wilted. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  6. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk until light in color.
  7. Wipe the skillet, add in the remaining olive oil and heat on medium-low heat. Stir eggs with a heat-resistant spatula until eggs are moist and just beginning to set. Remove from heat and stir once or twice more.
  8. Arrange potatoes, chorizo, spinach, and scrambled eggs into a shallow bowl. Top with sliced California Avocado and green onions.
  9. Drizzle with chipotle sauce, if desired.

Chipotle Drizzle Sauce

  1. In a food processor, blend all ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use.

Variations: Swap out protein to taste or spinach for kale or collard greens. Add an additional teaspoon of honey for a sweeter sauce.

Serving Suggestion: Fold into a warm tortilla for breakfast burrito.

Beverage Pairing: Enjoy with your favorite breakfast beverages for a perfect start to any day.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.

You can’t always tell if an avocado is ripe just by its color.

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
