What is Chorizo?
Chorizo is a type of spicy sausage that’s popular in Mexican and Spanish cuisines. Chorizo is made from ground pork that has been seasoned with paprkia, chili peppers, and vinegar. It’s commonly used in tacos, burritos, and egg dishes.
If you can’t find chorizo in your grocery store, you can make your own homemade version by combining 1 pound ground pork, 2 T. chili powder, 2 T. paprika, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 clove minced garlic, and 1/4 C. apple cider vinegar.
