Helpful hints

  • If you do not have a meat grinder, ask the butcher to grind meat or use a food processor. Working in small batches, coarsely grind pork in food processor fitted with metal blade, using on and off pulses. Do not over-grind.
  • Mexican chorizo is raw and must be cooked. Spanish chorizo is dry-cured and ready to eat.

Mexican Chorizo Sausage
K2thach says:

Can someone tell me what I can eat this with ? Does it go good with rice ? Side salad ? Or just the patty alone ? Dietitian comment: Often chorizo is eaten as a breakfast meat, so you could include it with eggs---think egg burrito. However it's flexible enough to include as an entrée at lunch or dinner.
