**Note: this recipe was updated in 2017 and omitted chorizo beef but can still be added as an optional variation!

Ahem, I have an announcement: I have recently discovered “chorizo beef” at the local Sprouts.

What is Sprouts? My favorite grocery store in OKC (similar to Trader Joe’s if you happen to have either one…)

What is chorizo? Glad you asked! It’s a Spanish pork sausage which is tasty…but high, high, high in fat content.

Hence the announcement! I found a chorizo spiced ground beef and have proceeded to make at least 3 meals lately starring said ingredient. Now! The good news is this…if you don’t have access to a Sprouts or a chorizo beef, this recipe can be modified tons of different ways. I adapted it from the Kraft Foods website and used fresh broccoli instead of spinach. You could use just about any meat and veggie combo.

I LOVE that the texture comes out almost like a lasagna, causing you to still cut it with a knife and use a spatula to get a corner out. Nice change of pace from soft eggs (which I also love…)

  1. So, I’m guessing the chorizo spiced beef is not high high high in fat like the regular chorizo? Kindof confused there…

  2. This sounds awesome and I think I’m going to go to the grocery store tomorrow and see about making this with ground turkey. I’m so glad you are feeling much better and back to cooking these great recipes. About the only thing I’m eating are your recipes. They are awesome.

  3. Not neeeearly as high in fat as the sausage. Sprouts doesn’t label with the percentage of fat in the ground beef, but it doesn’t come out too greasy- and I still drain it!
