Chipotle Chorizo Eggs Benedict

With the spring equinox and Easter just around the corner, I thought I'd try something different breakfast wise - and what better dish to play with than classic eggs benny? Confession: I've always been a sucker for a good poached egg - so slather that in hollandaise sauce and I'm pretty much in love.

But what if I got a little jiggy with it and spiced things up with chorizo sausage, and chipotle? People, WHAT IF??

I'll tell you what if... MASSIVE DELICIOUSNESS!!

So join me this week in the Casa de Kitchen Witch and I'll show you just how easy these are to make!
