  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 8 eggs, beaten

  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup tortilla chips or strips, broken into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Step 1Cook chorizo in large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 2Add onions and cook just until they start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in eggs, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring, until eggs just begin to set, about 2 minutes.
