  • 1 1/2 cups whole grain sorghum
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup diced sweet red bell pepper
  • 1/2 pound Mexican-style chorizo, casings removed, crumbled
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons mild chili powder

  • 1 cup packed fresh spinach leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, sliced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Combine sorghum and water in the Instant Pot®. Secure the lid on the pot. Close the pressure-release valve. Select manual and cook at high pressure for 20 minutes.

  3. Drain the sorghum in a fine-mesh strainer and set aside. Wipe inner pot dry and replace.

  6. Add cooked sorghum, zucchini, and spinach and stir to heat through and wilt spinach.
  7. Make 4 wells in the sorghum mixture and carefully crack an egg into each well. Put the lid on the pot but do not secure and continue to cook on saute until eggs are cooked to desired doneness, about 5 minutes for softly set.
