Mexican Chorizo Frittata (+cooking video!)


Well good morning once again from paradise!! I’m sitting in the kitchen of our rental looking out at the ocean, but now I’m all packed up and ready to leave in just a few minutes. Cabo has been amazing. Minus me drinking too much and losing my sh*t last night. Drinking and instagramming is bad idea. I had to do some deleting this morning. Yikes.

Anywhoooooo, let’s talk about this recipe so I forget my poor life decisions. This recipe is DELICIOUS!! I don’t personally eat eggs because I have a slight allergy to them and my husband can’t eat them at the moment and I had to make this recipe three separate times so my sister-in-law was one happy woman. But I did sneak a couple bites and it is so damn good!! If you’re on the whole30 train right now or just trying to clean up your diet in the New Year, this is a great start! And it can be sliced up and eaten throughout the week! Now go try this while I catch a flight back home to Colorado!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I just want to have as much fun as you and your sister-in-law were having when mine visits me in March (#2018goals)! 🙂 Love you girl, and can’t wait to make this delicious recipe!

  2. This looks amazing.

    And your Instagram stories were amazing–I laughed so hard.

    Anxiously awaiting your opinion on the Bachelor premiere 😉

  3. That looks yummy. Any idea if there is a way to adapt the butcher box breakfast sausage to this recipe? I know I know… I should just go get chorizo at the store lol
    I love your IG stories, you’re hilarious! And like Brooke mentioned, can’t wait to hear your thoughts about the new bachelor!!

  4. Hi Juli! Is there a certain brand of chorizo that you buy? I grew up in a dominantly Portuguese community and chorizo makes up about 90% of the cuisine here (no, but seriously). However delicious it may be, it is extremely fatty and filled with crap that I’m SURE would scar me for life if I truly knew. I’m just wondering what else is out there and what is worth trying. Thanks!

  5. “Place an 8 inch seasoned cast iron skillet over medium heat. Break into small pieces.” Don’t think I can do that! 🙂

  6. gurrrl as I was watching your Instagram stories I was thinking “she is SO going to regret this” hahahahahaha but honestly you should just own it. Everyone deserves some drunk sloppy harmless fun every once in a while!

    ps this recipe looks really good, definitely going to try it soon

    1. if i hadn’t gotten so messy later on (not visible on ig) i would have kept those videos up lol but i had to erase some of my regret lol

  7. Hey Julie, I just looked on amazon and they have a million different meat mashers. Which brand did you get? Yours looks like a good one & I need that b/c I’m tired of having to move the cooked meat to the food processor to get the right texture! Thanks in advance and you look so great in the video girl!

  8. can’t wait to make this!!!!!
    By the way I LOVED your IG stories when you were slightly intoxicated 😉 Cabo looked gorgeous! I fall off my band wagon when I’m traveling and I’m always so intrigued that you make time to workout! Making it my goal his year to workout on vacation! Even bought some “loop band thing a magigs” to stick in my backpack! Thanks for always inspiring! Give Jackson love!!!!

    1. you just gotta get it done first thing in the morning! every morning i would wake up by 6:30am (i’m just an early riser) to see the sunrise while i sipped my coffee, then i would put my workout clothes on and get to it by 8am at the latest and have breakfast right after then start the day! it feels so so good to get even the simplest movement in like running, jumping and squats!

  9. Ok, I must admit that I have not had time to try this yet! Argh! Work… Boo! Buuuut… I wanted to thank you for your Mulay’s product recommend in the video… I went on their website and ordered their sampler package which included 1 of all 9 of their products. If nothing else good happens in 2018, I at least have Mulay’s sausage! Crazy, I know, but I have been looking for a Paleo ABF sausage with this kind of flavor ever since starting Paleo 2 years ago! I have yet to find one in VA! This sausage is awesome!!! I cooked up the mild links with some marinara and served it over balsamic beet spaghetti… it was to die for! I was actually glad my hubby didn’t want to eat any(beet noodles freaked him out), more for me!!!! Thanks again for the product recommendation!!! Keep em coming!!! Can’t wait to try their chorizo in this recipe!!!

  10. OMG this was amazing!!! I made some coworkers try it as well, and they all begged me for the recipe! Love how easy this was to make too 🙂 Thanks for another great recipe! P.S. I just bought your newest recipe book…can’t wait to try everything out!

  11. Hi Juli! I just finished watching the video because I’m making this for dinner tonight, and I have two thoughts:

    1. Meat smasher?!? Where have you been all my life!?
    2. This video is incredibly professional. WOW! It could be on Food Network!

    Great job!

  12. Made this yesterday – bravo! I love chorizo and eggs. This makes it look so much prettier and it was so tasty and filling.

  13. I made this for mother’s day brunch yesterday and it was SO good and so easy to make in advance! I made it in the morning and then just brought it over to my MIL’s house in the skillet. Super easy! Thanks!
