How to make it

  1. In small bowl whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper to combine; add chorizo. Heat broiler.
  2. In 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat heat oil until shimmers. Add potatoes and cook 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Add onions and cook, flipping over potatoes occasionally, 5 minutes. Add 1/3 cup water, cover pan with lid or foil and continue to cook about 8 minutes, turning potato mixture occasionally, or until potatoes are fork-tender and golden.
  3. Pour egg mixture on top of potatoes, reduce heat to medium low. Cook about 4 minutes or until eggs are nearly set. Sprinkle with cheese and place under broiler 5 minutes until cheese is golden and eggs are set.
