Chorizo 101

  • Chorizo is a spicy sausage believed to have come from Ancient Rome and later adopted by the Spaniards who brought it to Mexico.

  • Unlike Spanish Chorizo — Mexican style is soft, raw, uncured, and uncooked.

  • Similar to how Americans view bacon, Chorizo is a versatile ingredient one can use to enhance any dish!

Directions

  • Remove casing from Chorizo links.

  • Place desired amount in a non-stick skillet.

  • Break-up Chorizo while cooking at medium heat.

  • Sauté for 7-8 minutes until the Chorizo is fully cooked or the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees (F).

  • Enjoy on or in any dish.
