For the savory corn cake:

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and brush with the remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter. Scoop 1/4 cup mounds of the mixture into the skillet leaving 1/2-inch of space between the cakes. When they are nice and golden on the bottom turn them over and cook for about 2 more minutes on the other side.

For the scramble:

Lightly whisk the eggs. Heat up a nonstick pan, add the eggs and scramble lightly. When the eggs are about almost done, add the remaining ingredients.

To serve, place the corn cakes on a platter, place the scramble eggs alongside and serve with griddled chorizo sausage.
