Chorizo is good when used as a breakfast meal. Scramble eggs add some refried beans and then some chorizo. Cook together in a large skillet and serve with flour or corn tortillas. (I can't give exact measurements because I just add to my family's liking) Play around with it. You could alao make Mexican rice and add cooked chicken breast on top of the rice with lots of Mexican cheese and then top it off with the chorizo. Read More

Yum! My only change was to use 1/4 cup chili powder and 1/4 pepper flakes instead of the full 1/2 cup flakes. Read More

Having never made chorizo before and for someone who lives in the Southwest this recipe is awesome! Spicy but not so spicy that your mouth hurts. This one is a keeper! Read More

This is an easy recipe that is made ahead of time. Prepare the night before and it s ready when you get home from work. I fry it in a pan then scramble it with beaten eggs. Read More

Make this freeze this in 1/4lb portions and incorporate it when you make tacos or burritos or enchiladas. When I finished cooking it is when I added a little salt. Read More

I thought this was ok as a spicy sausage recipe but not chorizo. I'll have to try something else. Read More

I loved it. I just wish I had suggestions on how to use it. I used it like ground beef. I guess that worked because my family loved it. Read More
