This is really good -- a complete light dinner accompanied with a tossed salad. Instead of the leek I used onion and I am not sure if the chorizo I used was cured -- I used the type that you have to take the casing off of (8 oz). I also used extra cheese and probably used the wrong size pan, but it all worked together and was very good! Thanks for sharing!
