Sweet Potato and Chorizo Frittata

Is it just me or do y’all love chorizo like I do? Let’s be honest though; we can’t eat it as much as we’d like because it’s super high in fat and likely not the best lean animal protein at the grocery store. That being said, when a recipe has chorizo in it, I simply can’t pass it up! I think I’ve found a way to incorporate chorizo s a small amount while packing the dish full of flavor and spice. I am not a fan of heat but this one is just enough spicy without being over kill.

This is a dish I would picture to be served in Sante Fe or somewhere in Arizona. The sweet potatoes and peppers give it a heartiness while the chorizo kicks up the spice. The tomato and avocado cool it down (and maybe even top with some sour cream if you do dairy). I promise you won’t be disappointed with this one! It serves about 6-8 slices and keeps well in the fridge for reheated leftovers. Make it on a Sunday and meal prep for the next 1-2 days for breakfast!
