Spanish Chorizo Tortilla

spanish chorizo tortillaYep today is Thursday in my household which means one thing.  My wife has taken over the TV with Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.  I actually don’t mind this though because both shows are actually pretty well written.  Ok ok ok that and she tolerates my Game of Thrones infatuation lol, she actually really likes GoT as well.

So after the regular daily grind I hit the gym as planned and when I got home I made the kids some new ice cream.  Its the same ice cream that I made here , the only exception is that I added some mini chocolate chips to it.  My son has been begging me for sprinkles but I didn’t have any so this was the way I improvised.

Today I am going to talk more about this recipe because this is a staple in my diet.  I will make one of these 1-2 times a month atleast and it feeds me breakfast all week long.  To me this is a perfect blend of spicy and savory.  My wife made this for me the first time and I was just simply addicted.  This dish is absolutely incredible.  I really hope you do try it and enjoy it as much as I do.  I am not sure if the name is accurate or not but where we live its heavily hispanic and they call it a Spanish Tortilla, I added the word chorizo to signify that its sausage based.

Here is the recipe!
