Fiesta Frittata/Holy Taco Pie

 So I had all these leftover onions from cooking fajitas and made this delicious frittata. Seriously - it's amazing. I want it all the time. The onions that I had were already cooked and definitely had flavor from the meat they were cooked with, but I'm writing the recipe how I'd make it without the leftover onions.

Fiesta Frittata/Holy Taco Pie
primal / paleo option / grain-free / gluten-free
Yield: 8 servings

1 yellow onion, crescents
1-1.25 lb ground chorizo sausage
4-6 mushrooms, sliced thin
1-2 bell peppers, sliced
1-2 c greens, I used kale
10 eggs whisked with
1/2-3/4c whole milk*
Cooking fat of choice (coconut oil, bacon fat, olive oil)
1/4c cheese of choice (cotija!)**
*Coconut for paleo
**Omit for paleo

Topping ideas:
Green onions
More cotija
Fresh diced tomatoes
Pico de gallo
Sour cream/yogurt

Heat your oven to 375 degrees.

Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add 1T cooking fat of choice to the pan, followed by the onions, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until translucent (you could add some spices here if you want, but the chorizo from our butcher is super flavorful. If you do, I'd do a dash of cumin, maybe a touch of paprika). When the onions are soft and translucent, remove from the pan. 

Add the chorizo and cook until done. Remove from the pan. Add a touch more oil, and throw in the mushrooms. Salt and pepper them. Let them soak up all the fat/flavor that rendered out of the sausage. Add the peppers (and any other veggies besides greens), give them some S+P, and stir fry for a minute. 

Add the onions and chorizo back in the pan, followed by the greens. Stir everything together. At this point I added a touch of butter to melt along the bottom of the pan because the particular pan I was using sometimes sticks in crucial situations. 

Pour in the eggs and milk evenly over the top of the fiesta in the pan. Top with some cheese. Cotija preferably, but cheddar or colby jack would suffice if necessary. 

Cook for 20 minutes, or until the eggs are completely set but not overcooked! Top with anything and everything and devour.

Store leftovers in the fridge. Reheat in a 350 degree oven wrapped in foil for 15-20 minutes. Or eat cold. Whatevz.
