Chorizo Vegetable Frittata

Ohhh, this is so yummy. My mouth is watering right now just typing all this up! It's really a simple thing and you probably could do it on your own but I wanted to share it here so I don't forget its deliciousness.

Chorizo Vegetable Frittata

3 large eggs, stirred up with a touch of water
1/4-1/2 cup diced green peppers
handful sliced mushrooms  (canned or fresh)
2 oz cheese, diced small
3-4 oz chorizo, cooked and drained (if you can't find this, use spicy pork sausage)
salt/pepper to taste
Opt: red pepper flakes
NOTE: Chorizo - a Spanish or Mexican pork sausage highly seasoned with garlic, paprika, and other spices

1 - Fry up the chorizo in an OVEN SAFE until cooked through, drain on a paper towel (it's very greasy).
2 - Clean the pan and then heat up for eggs. Dump in 3 eggs liquid with a touch of water in them.
3 - As the eggs are setting up on the bottom, turn the oven on to broil.
4 - Sprinkle the wet eggs with all your ingredients.
5 - Add salt and pepper to taste. Another great thing would be red pepper flakes if you like it spicy.
6 - Once the egg is set up on the bottom (but still wet on the top), take your oven safe pan and place it in the oven under the broiler.
7 - When everything is heated, melted and sufficiently cooked (doesn't take long, so don't walk away!), take it out, slide onto a plate and serve! So delicious. Perfect for any meal!

Feeds 2 to 4 but it's so good, we usually just split it between 2.
