  • 6 oz Pork and Beef Chorizo
  • 12 large Egg (Whole)
  • 8 oz Green Chili Peppers (Canned)
  • 2/3 cup, chopped or sliced Red Tomatoes
  • 2 oz Cheddar Cheese


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. In a large oven-proof skillet, sauté the chorizo, breaking it up into bite-sized pieces over medium-high heat until cooked through; about 5 minutes. Drain off excess fat and leave in the pan.  While chorizo is cooking, shred the cheese and dice the tomatoes and set both aside.
  3. Add lightly beaten eggs, green chilies, tomatoes and shredded cheese to the chorizo. Cook over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes then place pan under the broiler for 3-4 minutes until light and slightly puffed. Serve immediately.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
