Cheesy Zucchini and Chorizo Frittata - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineSince the zucchinis are so watery, I sautéed them with the chorizo to allow the water to evaporate. I also added a good amount of cheddar cheese to the egg mixture, to bring the right consistency to the frittata.
Cheesy Zucchini and Chorizo Frittata - SAVOIR FAIRE by enrilemoineTo make it even more appealing, when the frittata was done, I sprinkled more cheese on the top, and broiled it in the same pan where I cooked it, so the cheese melted bringing its bright yellow color to the dish.
