Chorizo Breakfast Protein Scramble

One of my favorite ways to make sure I’m able to eat at home and get adequate protein in within a day is to make and keep generalized/bulk cooked items at home. Today’s recipe is an amalgamation of things I like to keep around the house and one of my favorite mix & match weekly meal items: lean ground beef  “chorizo.” 

The breakfast scrable itself consists of this bulk homemade chorizo which I’ll explain later on in the. article and just two other items:

3 Eggs

2oz Fat Free Cream Cheese (I had some in the fridge left over from the protein alfredo recipe) 

8oz Beef Chorizo

Reheat your chorizo in a pan, add eggs and scramble, when the eggs are soft cooked add the cream cheese diced up and heat until it’s slightly melted! 

Makes 2 servings. Macros for the full recipe are as follows. Youl could also modify the eggs, cheese, and meat ratios to alter the nutritional status depending on your needs/wants.
