chorizo and egg omelette ingredients


  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chorizo, diced
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or any cheese of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: diced avocado, chopped cilantro, sour cream


  1. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk them together until the yolks and whites are well combined. Season the eggs with salt and pepper to taste and set them aside.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the tablespoon of butter. Once the butter is melted, add in the diced chorizo to the skillet and sauté for about 1-2 minutes until it is heated through.
  3. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet and let cook for about 30 seconds or until you see the egg starting to set.
  4. Using a spatula, gently lift the edges of the omelette and allow the uncooked eggs to flow to the edges of the pan. Tilt the skillet to ensure the eggs flow to the edge and repeat this process a few times until the egg is set, but still slightly runny on top.
  5. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over one-half of the omelette and let it cook for 10-15 seconds to start melting.
  6. Using the spatula, fold the other half of the omelette over the cheese and chorizo and press down gently. Let it cook for an additional 30 seconds to a minute until the cheese is melted and the eggs are cooked through.
  7. Slide the omelette onto a plate and serve hot with your desired toppings. Optional toppings include diced avocado, chopped cilantro, and sour cream.
  8. Serve and enjoy your delicious chorizo and egg omelette!

How long does chorizo and egg omelette last in the fridge?

An omelette made with chorizo and egg can last for 3-4 days in the fridge after cooking. The trick to storing an omelette is to let it cool to room temperature before transferring it to an airtight container or placing it in a sealable plastic bag. One can also wrap the omelette in plastic wrap tightly. The airtight container will prevent the omelette from drying out or getting stale. Reheating is always an option, but it should be done in a microwave, a skillet, or oven, and one must consume it within 2 hours of reheating. If there is any sign of spoilage or the omelette smells rancid, it should be discarded immediately.

Low calorie chorizo and egg omelette substitutions

To make this chorizo and egg omelette recipe lower calorie, there are a few substitutions that can be made.

Third, you can use reduced-fat cheese or reduce the amount of cheese used in the recipe. Finally, you can add more vegetables such as chopped bell peppers, onions, or spinach to the omelette to increase the fiber and nutrient content without adding many additional calories. These substitutions will still allow you to enjoy a tasty omelette while reducing the overall calorie content.
