Peel your eggplants using a peeler or pairing knife. Cut into 1 inch rounds, and then cut into 1 inch cubes.
Cook the chorizo over medium heat in a large skillet until slightly browned and broken up in smaller crumbles (about 10 minutes). Reserve 1/2 of the chorizo as you will add it in slowly later, to your taste. If you do not use all of the chorizo, use the extra for an egg scramble breakfast.
Add two tablespoons of olive oil and the eggplant cubes to skillet and cook down until cubes are browned and slightly soft (about 15 minutes). Stir often to incorporate with chorizo. Add cumin, garlic powder, and salt while cooking. Taste while cooking to obtain the taste you will enjoy.
Add the mixture and the onion to a food processor. Pulse with two tablespoons of water until paste consistency of classic refried beans is formed. You will likely have to use a spatula and scrape the sides of the blender after pulsing. You may need additional water. Add more chorizo, if needed, to taste between pulses. Garnish with queso fresco, jalapeño, and tomato.
You can also use cheddar cheese in place of Queso Fresco for a garnish. Throughout the process you can add a few tablespoons of water when necessary to increase the creaminess of the dish. Zucchinis can be used as a substitute for the eggplant.
