Our Mini Family: Chorizo Egg Muffin Breakfast On-The-Go


Chorizo Egg Muffin Breakfast On-The-Go

These chorizo egg muffins are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast all week long! Thanks to our friends at NatureSweet for partnering with us on this egg muffin recipe!


Happy Cinco de Mayo! 

Mexican chorizo was one of the first foods I tried when I first moved to Arizona and I've been obsessed with it ever since. This spicy, ground meat sausage is perfect in so many dishes and can be served alongside breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The first time I tried Mexican chorizo was in a sandwich slider packed with cheese, cilantro, salsa verde, and tomato. It was divine! I've been hooked on trying to find ways to enjoy chorizo in my meals since--it makes a great pizza topping, pasta protein, and is delicious in sandwiches, burritos, and even with eggs. 

One of my favorite ways to prepare my weekday breakfast is with egg muffins. I like to spend time on Sunday night preparing these muffins and storing them in the fridge, so Adam and I can grab a muffin to heat up and have breakfast on-the-go. These chorizo egg muffins with green onions, cheese, and tomato are a wonderful quick and easy breakfast packed with protein and full of flavor! 







When I was grocery shopping at Safeway the other day, I saw these bizarre-looking tomatoes in the produce section and had to check them out. These are  NatureSweet Eclipses and they are unique tomatoes that are bold with a deep shade of red and deep flavor that pairs great with the chorizo egg muffins! The  NatureSweet Eclipses are greenhouse grown and exclusive to NatureSweet, since they are the only ones who make this tomato variety. If you happen to see them at Safeway or your local grocery store, definitely pick them up and give them a try since they are so unique!

  1. I love little mini meals, they are so convenient because you can make them ahead of time and freeze them. We used to have Chorizo and egg burritos when we would go camping and the grown ups spent a lot of time making the meals just perfect. This would be so much easier. I can't wait to try this recipe!
