Cheesy Chorizo Brunch Pie

Brunch ... should it be more breakfast or more lunch or an equal blend of both? Our Cheesy Chorizo Brunch Pie balances the eggs you crave for breakfast with hearty chorizo that will keep you satisfied through the afternoon. Start off your Cheesy Chorizo Brunch Pie by cooking the chorizo, then set aside to cool. Lightly beat eggs with a fork then blend in butter, flour, baking powder and cream cheese with an electric mixer. Add Smith's Cottage Cheese, shredded cheese, salsa, fresh herbs and spices. Mix in chorizo and pour into a greased pie plate. After this beautiful Cheesy Chorizo Brunch Pie bakes for about 30 minutes total, let it rest, then slice into wedges. Garnish with Smith's Sour Cream, green onions, cilantro and salsa as desired, and let the party in your mouth begin!
