Chorizo And Spinach Scramble
(4 servings)

2 Tbs. vegetable oil
3/4 lb. chorizo thinly sliced
4 green onions -- including tender green portions -- sliced
2 bunches fresh spinach -- stems removed and leaves chopped (or 1 package washed spinach)
6 eggs
2 Tbs. warm water
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese

In a large fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring until browned, about 5 minutes. Drain off the fat. Add the green onions and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the chopped spinach in batches, stirring after each addition to wilt the leaves. Once all the spinach has been added and cooked down, pour off any liquid in the bottom of the pan.
In a bowl, beat the eggs with the warm water and cheese. Pour over the spinach-chorizo mixture and cook, stirring, until the eggs are softly scrambled.

This is a version of an old San Francisco dish called Joe’s Chorizo And Spinach Scramble. If you don't have chorizo (or maybe you don't want too much spicyness), you can use regular old pork or turkey sausage and pepper to your taste.
