Serves 4



  1. In frying pan, cook chorizo until completely cooked through, set aside.

  2. Fill saucepan with water halfway to top and bring to simmer.

  3. While water comes to boil, separate 2 egg yolks and place in blender with lemon juice and kosher salt.

  4. Microwave butter until completely melted. Blend egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and chile powder at medium speed. While blending, slowly add butter through hole in top of blender lid; blend until combined and sauce thickens, about one minute.

  5. Crack open eggs and set aside in small bowl.

  6. Toast muffins, lightly butter and spread 1/4 chorizo (about 2 ounces) on each muffin half. Set aside.

  7. To simmering sauce pan add 1/2 tablespoon distilled white vinegar and stir to incorporate.

  8. Continue stirring water in circular motion to create whirlpool. Individually drop one egg into water and cover. Turn off stove and let eggs sit for about 2-3 minutes. Using slotted spoon carefully remove eggs and place over chorizo.

  9. Pour hollandaise sauce over top of poached eggs, followed by HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa. Garnish with cilantro and serve.

  10. Chef’s Tip: When poaching eggs, hold prep dish in one hand and continue stirring hot water with other. When you have a good “whirlpool” going, remove spoon and pour eggs from prep dish directly into center of whirlpool, as close to water as you can get (this prevents egg whites from feathering).
