Yields: 2 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

For the avocado mash:

  • 1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

For the chorizo and eggs:

  • 4 ounces Spanish-style chorizo, casing removed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 slices bread (your favorite kind – sourdough, whole wheat, or gluten-free)
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Toppings (optional):

  • Sliced cherry tomatoes
  • Cotija cheese or crumbled feta
  • Hot sauce

Equipment

  • Medium bowl
  • Fork
  • Large skillet
  • Toaster

Instructions:

Prepare the avocado mash:

  • Scoop the avocado flesh into the medium bowl.
  • Add salt, pepper, and lime juice. Roughly mash with the fork, leaving it slightly chunky.
  • Stir in cilantro (if using) and set aside.

Cook the chorizo:

  • Crumble chorizo into the large skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through (about 5-7 minutes). Drain off any excess fat.

Toast the bread:

  • While the chorizo is cooking, toast your bread to desired doneness.

Fry the eggs:

  • Add the olive oil to the skillet with the cooked chorizo.
  • Crack eggs directly into the pan, spacing them apart. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook until the whites are set but yolks are still runny (or to your desired doneness).

Assemble the toasts:

  • Spread a generous layer of avocado mash onto each slice of toast.
  • Top with the cooked chorizo.
  • Carefully place a fried egg on top of each toast.
  • Add any desired toppings, like tomatoes, cheese, or hot sauce.

Serve and enjoy!

  • Serve your Egg and Chorizo Avocado Toasts immediately and enjoy this delicious and satisfying breakfast or brunch.

Tips:

  • Bread choices: Experiment with different types of bread for varied flavor and texture.
  • Spicy kick: Use Mexican chorizo for a spicier flavor profile.
  • Egg variations: Instead of fried eggs, try poached or scrambled eggs for different textures.
  • Make it ahead: The avocado mash and chorizo can be prepped a day in advance for quicker assembly in the morning.
