Skillet Egg Bake with Chorizo and Beans
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)
- canned diced tomato
- can black beans (optional, omit for Whole 30 or Paleo)
- baby spinach
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.
