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
  • cheese
  • guacamole (mandatory)

Directions:

First I made the brown rice and set it asideIMG 8347 thumb Mexican Meatless Monday – Chorizo Fried Rice

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 icon smile Mexican Meatless Monday – Chorizo Fried Rice IMG 8343 thumb Mexican Meatless Monday – Chorizo Fried Rice

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).IMG 8351 thumb1 Mexican Meatless Monday – Chorizo Fried Rice
