  1. Beat the eggs in a bowl, then stir in most of the chives and season. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then fry the chorizo and chilli for 3 mins or until crisp. Tip into a bowl and mix with the cheese.

  2. Put the pan back on the heat, pour in the eggs and cook for 1 min or until set to your liking, swirling the eggs with a fork a few times as they start to set. Spoon the cheese mix over one half of the omelette, top with the remaining chives, then flip the other side over the filling. Leave for 30 secs more until the cheese starts to melt at the edges. Serve straightaway.

Quick, easy, great tasting recipe. Replaced the chilli with chopped mushroom, as not a huge fan of chilli & fried it up with the chorizo. Definitely agree chunky chorizo works better than sliced. Also used a semi-soft ewes milk cheese, which makes a nice alternative to goats cheese & works well.

Great recipe, my other half who is somewhat a fussy eater loved it. I've tried it with hard goats cheese which you can grate and soft goats cheese, it depends on your own tastes which you prefer. However, the soft goats cheese is my fave it is stronger in taste so you might want to experiment to get it right.

Very tasty for something so quick to make. I didn't have any chives so used some dried thyme in with the eggs, which tasted fine. I'd agree with VikingPenguin that chunky chorizo works better than slices - I think a spicy, piccante type would be better still.

Love this. I like to fry up some mushrooms with the chorizo as well. Works best with chunky chorizo from a full sausage rather than the pre-done slices I feel.

Simple and delicious. Makes a quick, tasty, low calorie supper when served with salad that feels decadent and quenches my craving for cheese beautifully. Yum!

Fantastic mid-week supper. I used slices of pepperoni as I had some left over from another meal and served with a spinach and rocket salad with a little more goats cheese crumbled through and a balsamic dressing. Delicious!
