Mexican Eggs with Chorizo (Gluten-Free)

I like to think of eggs as a “chameleon food;” dress them up any which way you’d like, and they make an excellent breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The same goes for this spicy
Mexican spin on ordinary sausage and eggs.

Canned beans are an okay substitute but Serrano chilies are small and don’t take long to roast. You can remove the seeds to reduce the heat, but the flavor from fresh roasted chilies adds a smoky dimension to the dish. Leftover rice can also be added in with the beans and chilies for added texture and filling, but to prevent the eggs from getting too dry, I would add another medium sized tomato. This is a simple recipe but serving it family style alongside a basket of tortillas creates a charming authenticity.

Ingredients:
4 large eggs
½ pound chorizo sausage, casings removed
1 ½ cups cooked black beans
2 Serrano chilies, roasted and chopped
1 large diced tomato
1 sliced avocado
1 small diced red onion
¾ cup queso fresco, crumbled (can substitute Monterrey or pepper Jack)
¼ cup chopped cilantro
Warmed corn tortillas

Directions:
Brown chorizo and onion for 5-10 minutes in a 12-inch frying pan, breaking up sausage with spoon into desirable bites. Drain and reserve 2-3 tablespoons of the fat in the pan.

In the same pan, add black beans and chilies and cook over medium heat until gently simmering. Return chorizo and onions back to the pan.

Using the back of a ladle or large spoon, gently press 4 wells and crack and egg into each, leaving yolks intact. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 4-5 more minutes.

Top with crumbled cheese, tomato, avocado slices and cilantro. Serve with tortillas.

Where do you find Gluten Free Chorizo? I have searched online and in stores and haven't found a brand that labels their chorizo as gluten free.

Me, too! This recipe calls for removing the casing, but then the chorizo is contaminated.

That explains EVERYTHING. I had Aetna PPO about 4 years ago, and it was horrible. Absolutely horrible, and expensive. They jacked up the price the year Obamacare came out, from $550 a month (family) to $725 a month and I got stuck paying it for a year. I dropped them like a rock when open season came around. They are a greedy and worthless insurance company.

Hi Ahhhnold (is that like Shwartzenegger?! ), I am also waiting for my endoscopy. In the meantime, the people on this message board suggested that I request the celiac antibody panel to be drawn. Do you know if that was included in your blood work? If not, you can ask your primary care doctor to order it while you wait. That might shed light on just what's going on in your body. I had mine drawn yesterday and am waiting for the results, but they typically can be back within a few days. Why not give it a try?

I know what you mean. On one hand, I don't want celiac disease, but on the other hand, it would be a "fixable" problem that would explain so many of my health problems... all the way back to age 11, honestly! From my understanding, from the very nice and knowledgeable people here, only one test being flagged high counts as a positive or potential positive. Letting the GI specialist know this means that they will (should) take extra care when doing and endoscopy and taking samples for biopsy. Good luck! I hope you get your answers!

A protein in corn that can be utilized by itself as a thickening agent or extracted in some cases to be used as a protein additive in highly processed foods like some process meats, gravy, sauces, etc. More often found in pet foods. Not related to wheat gluten or something the typical celiac needs to worry about. Me on the other hand am highly allergic to corn, if you have the same thing avoid it, along with modified food starch, vegetable oils, vegetable proteins, (these mixes normally contain corn) and several other processed forms along with the obvious corn starch, corn syrup, corn, masa, corn flour, maize, etc. Damnedest thing, they now often make biodegradable bags from corn starch/corn gluten, same with some new disposable ware....found out about the bags after breaking out in a rash from one I got at a health food store......

I'm 3 weeks away from my EGD and Celiac biopsy. I wish it was tomorrow. I started having stomach pain a few months back, had ultrasound, Bloodwork, H-Pylori test. Ultrasound normal, blood work normal, H-Pylori test negative, diagnosed with gastritis and given Nexium. It went away completely for about 3 weeks then came back with this constant belching, when I say constant I mean like sleeping 2 maybe 3 hours at night, the stomach pain would kinda come and go but the belching was non stop. Finally got referred to a GI specialist. While waiting on my appointment I decided to see if it could be an intolerance. First went dairy, no help. Then finally gluten. Within a week I was much better. Finally relief. I saw my doctor told him the diet was helping, he ordered an EGD and Celiac biopsy. But since I saw him a week ago I feel like I'm getting worse again. So yesterday I ate gluten free waffles and had a horrible day, so much gas and belching all day. I couldn't understand, so I looked at the box and found it's got soy. I read that people who have Celiac have trouble with soy as well. So today I've been, gluten, dairy, and soy free which mean I can't eat crap. But I've felt much better today than yesterday. In the mean time I'm curious, when they go in with the scope and do the intestinal scrape for the biopsy, how long do you have to wait for results? I'm so ready to do these tests and get some answers.
