This Ground Beef-based, lower calorie sausage brings the bold, spicy flavors of Chorizo to a savory blend of eggs, bread, red pepper and spinach.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare Mexican-Style Beef Sausage. Stir in bell pepper and spinach; set aside.
Mexican-Style Beef Sausage: Combine 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner), 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves, 1-1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika, 1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder in large mixing bowl mixing lightly but thoroughly. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, beat eggs, milk, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in large bowl until blended. Stir in bread and 1 cup cheese. Stir in sausage mixture.
