Huevos Flamencos

I was wandering through the pages of a tapas book of mine when my Mr pointed out a picture I would probably never pay much attention to. A nicely colored photo of a quite simple dish, that I thought would taste as “simple” as it was described. After all, what good could come out of some corn, bell peppers and eggs? I’m not a big fan of corn, he is not a huge friend of bell peppers, but we both like eggs and well, why not give it a try? After having checked a couple of basic recipes around the web and adding my own little touches and changes, I can proudly say that we have created a new family favorite! If you have the chance, give it a try – real simple to make but the taste, is amazing.

1. On a little olive oil, saute the onions. Add the chorizo, garlic and the chopped pepper, cook for about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes, spices and parsley, cook for about 5 minutes more. Add the corn and remove from the heat.

2. Spoon the mixture into an oven proof dish (you can also use 2 individual dishes) and break 3 eggs on top. Sprinkle with oregano and push into the oven pre-heated to 180°C/360°F. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the egg whites are done.

Serve steaming hot with fresh bread for the best experience!
