  • 4 small flour tortillas cut in 1 inch strips
  • 4 tsp canola oil or peanut oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Few dashes of hot sauce optional
  • 1 cup grated cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese

  4. Place them in a single layer on the parchment lined baking sheet.

  5. Bake for 3 minutes before flipping them over and baking for another 2 or 3 minutes or until they become crisp.

  6. Sauté the chorizo sausage in the 1 tbsp oil for only a few minutes, then add the, red pepper and garlic for about a couple of minutes longer. If using loose sausage meat, be sure it is fully cooked.

  7. Add the eggs which have been whisked together with the salt, pepper and hot sauce.
  8. Cook to a soft scramble. Spoon scrambled eggs on the crispy tortilla strips on 4 serving plates.

  9. Immediately top each plate with about 1/4 cup grated cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese and some black olives. (optional)

The BEST chorizo sausage is available at the Saturday market at Alderney Landing in Dartmouth, the ferry terminal. Actually, they are open daily, too. They have all hand-made, no filler sausages and tons of flavours, i.e. Turkey Fennel, Greek, Italian. They are made somewhere here in Nova Scotia, I think they are called Sweet Williams - and I'm sure they are at the Halifax Market, too. Well worth the trip!!

You can substitute your favorite sausage for sure. Chorizo can be a little difficult to find here as well but you can find it under the "President's Choice" brand at Loblaws/Dominion.

Hi I'm in Lower Sackville Nova Scotia and have never heard of chorizo sausage. Where can I buy that. I am normally a Sobey's shopper. And I also usually cook with tomato /basil or Italian turkey sausage. Will this work. The recipe sounds great though. Keep them coming.
