This is very good! It s just me and my husband so I did an 8x8 glass pan. Used the same amount of chorizo1/2 the eggs. I did season the potatoes with season all. It doesn t say when to add the chorizo so I added to the potatoes and just cooked for a few more minutes. I covered the top with cheese and cooked as directed. Read More

This had potential but it definitely needs more seasoning. I am not a chorizo fan so I made an 8 x 8 pan using chorizo and an 8 x 8 pan using hot breakfast sausage instead. It did seem that the casserole could use some extra filling so I added a little extra sausage onion & peppers. I also added some salt & pepper to the mix. I might make this again but I would add some garlic powder & cayenne to the potato onion pepper mixture when I sauteed it to add some more flavor. Read More
