  • 4Servings


  • 2 cups corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 6 ounces cured chorizo sausage, finely chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 4 large flour tortillas (about 9 inches), ground into coarse crumbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Grease an 8-inch square baking dish. Using a food processor, puree 1 cup corn.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining 1 cup corn and cook until the corn begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chorizo.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, pureed corn and tortilla crumbs. Add the onion-chorizo mixture and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and bake until set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes; let sit for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the scallions.
