Mexican Style Souffle-with Chorizo and Peppers~ Ole`!

We Spiced up our Sunday Morning 

with this little dish~ 

You have to love a Souffle` with how warm and comforting they are and packed full of flavor; yet super-quick and easy to make! 
This one combines mildly spicy Chorizo and some standard Mexicali veggies. It only
takes about 5-10 minutes to whip together and then pop it in the oven. 

8 eggs
1 tube/8 oz package of Chorizo sausage 
1/2 cup heavy cream (or half/half or milk)
1 white onion-chopped
1 tomato-chopped (or 1/2 can diced-strained completely)
1 cup Cheddar cheese-shredded
4 yellow/red peppers-seeded and chopped
1 fresh clove of garlic (or garlic powder 1 tsp) 
1/2 cup of fresh cilantro (or 2 Tsp dried Cilantro) 
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
sour cream-to serve
salsa-to serve

Preheat oven to 350degrees F.  Add all chopped vegetables and Cilantro into round, oven-proof casserole and top with cheese.  Open package of Chorizo and squeeze out onto mixture. Slice if necessary into smaller bits. 

Vigorously, whisk together eggs and cream, using whisk or electric mixer; for 5 or more minutes. (Try to whisk as fast as possible and whip eggs in an upward loop to get air bubbles in-this helps the Souffle to rise when cooking).  Pour egg mix over top of other ingredients, salt and pepper over top, and immediately cover and place in center of oven. 

Bake 350degrees F for 35-40 minutes, until center if firm and passes test with toothpick or fork inserted without too much runny liquid.  Expect a small amount of liquid on the top, this is perfect and will soak back into the eggs when served. 

If desired, top with sour cream and salsa. Serve, immediately. 

*******Yum! Serve with coffee or tea and Enjoy your weekend morning!***
