  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 6 ounces fully cooked chorizo sausages, halved lengthwise, and sliced in ΒΌ-inch half moons
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 eggs
  • 4 ounces Manchego cheese, shredded
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, sour cream and salsa (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large heavy ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add chorizo. Sauté until lightly browned and beginning to crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove chorizo.
  3. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to pan. Heat over medium heat. Add sliced pepper, onion, garlic and ¼ teaspoon salt; sauté 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Whisk together eggs, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a large bowl. Stir in about two-thirds of the shredded cheese.
  5. Pour egg mixture into skillet, stirring once to distribute peppers and onions. Reduce heat to low. Arrange chorizo over top of eggs; cook, undisturbed, 5 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Transfer to oven and bake 20 minutes, or until eggs are set and top is puffed and golden.
  6. Let frittata rest 5 minutes and serve with sour cream and salsa, if using.
