Chorizo 101

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.
