Cheesy Chorizo Pancakes with a spicy maple syrup was our fun snow day breakfast.
This would be a great brunch or breakfast for dinner dish as well.
I am not a huge breakfast person, but if you throw in something spicy with it I’m game!
Chorizo is just one of those magical ingredients that is already perfectly seasoned with just the right amount of spice.
Yes, yes, I am a little lazy when it comes to anything baking related so I did use the store bought pancake mix.
If you have a great homemade recipe certainly use that instead.
Here’s how to make Cheesy Chorizo Pancakes
First set a skillet over medium heat and add the ground chorizo sausage.
Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, breaking it apart as it cooks.
Remove the sausage from the skillet and place on a plate lined with paper towels to help soak up the excess grease.
While the chorizo cooks, make the pancake batter according to the package directions for 10 to 12 pancakes.
My mix required 2 cups of dry mix and water.
Whisk it together until evenly combined.
Then stir in the cooked chorizo and a cup and a half of shredded cheese.
Wipe off the skillet used for the chorizo and set it over medium low heat.
Once it’s hot add some butter and a scoop of the pancake batter.
Flip the pancake after 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
And cook for about another minute on that side.
Then just repeat with remaining batter.
I made a spicy syrup for the Cheesy Chorizo Pancakes by mixing together pure maple syrup with my favorite hot sauce.
Such a new fun and scrumptious breakfast!
