Nick Massie of PaleoNick.com brings us a spicy breakfast pie with chorizo and plantains.
In a preheated cast-iron skillet, Massie starts cooking the chorizo before quartering the blackest plantains he can find and adding them to the pan.
“The thing I like about this dish is that maybe it’ll expose you to two ingredients that you haven’t used before,” he says of chorizo and plantains. “I recommend incorporating both of them into your diet.”
