A couple of weeks ago I told you about a restaurant my husband and I visited in downtown Houston called Blacksmith.  This quaint coffee shop served up the most delicious breakfast on their outdoor patio which was so nice to enjoy on a comfortable Sunday morning.

Two of their menu offerings inspired me to create new “recipes for one” for ZagLeft.  The Smoked Salmon with Eggs and Pesto, which I shared recently and now, this easy recipe for Spicy Chorizo Peas For One.

I’m not sure I would have thought to combine chorizo and peas but was so intrigued when I saw it listed on the menu, I knew right away that I had to try it.

My version of Chorizo Peas is quite different than the one we ate at Blacksmiths. While I loved the idea of this dish, I tasted only chorizo and peas in their version and not much else.   Although it was tasty, I wanted more spice and flavor.

In my single serving version, you won’t find any shortage of spice and flavor.  This “recipe for one” starts out by sautéing onions and garlic in olive oil.  Then the peas are added to the pan where the absorb the wonderful flavors from the onions and garlic.  Cooked chorizo is stirred in, then Mexican cheese, Cotija is sprinkled over the top as well as torn mint leaves.
