Mexican Meatless Monday – Chorizo Fried Rice
I wanted to make a Mexican version of fried rice for dinner and really just made it up as I went along. Luckily, it turned out great!
Chorizo Fried Rice
- 2 cups brown rice
- 1/3 package of soy chorizo (I use TJ’s version, but I know there are other brands out there)
- chopped onions and bell peppers (as much or as little as you want)
- 2 eggs
- salsa (optional)
- S&P to taste
- guacamole (mandatory)
First I made the brown rice and set it aside
Then, I browned the onions and softened the bell peppers in olive oil.
Once they were tender I added the chorizo. Chorizo is another ingredient where you can add more or less to taste. I say, the more the better though
I added the rice to the chorizo pan and heated through. Finally crack the eggs straight into the pan and cook. Top with cheese (you can stir it in to melt or use it as a garnish).
I served it with salad, beans and guacamole. Ole!
Ben loves anything with fried egg(and/or chorizo) in it, so he loved this
Happy Meatless Monday!
