Galician Omelet Sandwich

This colorful sandwich is nicely flavored with Spanish-style chorizo--a spicy, paprika-infused sausage with a dry and crumbly texture. Peppers and onions round out the flavor.

Preparation

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and chorizo slices and cook until the chorizo slices have browned and released their reddish color, 1 or 2 minutes.
