I don’t know about you guys, but I love chorizo! I used to have it growing up and have been hooked ever since. So many different chorizo brands have unnecessary ingredients that I choose not to consume, so I stayed away from eating chorizo for a long while when I became more knowledgable on the importance of the foods we consume. Luckily, I found an awesome brand that makes super clean ingredient chorizo that I feel comfortable consuming! Plus, it’s Whole30 compliant because there is no sugar! The chorizo that I’ve been buying for a while now is made by Mulay’s Sausage. It’s perfectly seasoned and tastes absolutely delicious. The full-fat coconut milk that I’ve buying lately is this Native Forest brand because the ingredients are literally just organic coconut and purified water. That’s it! I usually purchase both of these products at my local Natural Grocers.
I love making frittatas because they make for great leftovers. When I was an intern during the summer of last year, I prepped a frittata every Sunday and had that every single day for breakfast. I never ever got tired of it! I like to make my frittatas in my cast iron skillet because it makes for easy transfer from stove top to oven. You can totally use any oven-proof skillet that you have. I used a 12 inch skillet, but a 10 inch will work just fine. You can top this frittata with anything you like! I personally feel that chorizo pairs perfectly with cilantro, hot sauce, and avocado, so of course I topped mine with all three!
