This savory egg bake recipe is delicious way to start off the day! It’s almost like a southwestern version of Shakshuka, flavored with paprika, cumin, and spicy chorizo. We opted to add black beans to this skillet egg bake to round out the lower carb and dairy-free dish, but you can feel free to omit for paleo or Whole30.

What ingredients you need for these easy baked eggs:

  • chorizo sausage, casing removed (or fully cooked chorizo diced)
  • onion
  • canned diced tomato
  • cumin
  • paprika
  • can black beans (optional, omit for Whole 30 or Paleo)
  • baby spinach
  • eggs

What skillet should I use for this recipe?

Any oven safe skillet will work here. If you are using cast iron, make sure it is enameled as prolonged tomato exposure can ruin the seasoning on a regular cast iron skillet.

  1. This is precisely what I’ve been wanting to make for ages. I’ve never included beans before, so I’m very excited to try this version.

  2. 5 stars
    As a new mom and someone who has been focused on Whole Foods and is gluten and dairy free … I am always on the look out for easy quick whole food meals that pack a lot of flavor and this recipe did just that. It is definitely going to be in rotation. My husband even used leftovers to make a loaded tostada the next day!

  3. I’m about to make this and see that it is an updated recipe however, I am not seeing an even temp to finish off the eggs,.

  4. This was so good and a great dinner meal as well. I used 3/4 lb bulk chorizo, which also worked well. A couple ingredients listed are not included in the directions, so I just added the salt and cumin when adding the tomatoes. Added a half can of black beans, which really added to the flavor. A great hearty meal!

    I just found your web site via a facebook friend recommendation and I have to say I am so impressed . Anything I have tried has been so good. Thanks!

  5. This is a wonderful breakfast to fill you up for the long day ahead! My husband and I loved it. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Hello new graphics!!! Looks amazing 🙂 And obviously I love everything about this recipe!

    1. I totally agree, a great holiday breakfast to serve for guests -or- just for yourself! Thanks for stopping by Pamela!

  7. That looks so delicious. Exactly what I am craving. Thanks for the recipe!
    I think my favourite way to eat eggs is fried over-east, topped on anything and everything. Love a good runny yolk!
