Recently ran across two recipes calling for Mexican (not Spanish) Chorizo. Never had it, much less cooked it. At the store, I read the label on four different products:

Pork lymph nodes, salivary glands, and lips.

WTH???

Disgusting....

I proceeded with one recipe, but made my own chorizo from scratch. I found the recipe in "Smoke & Spice". There's another here very similar to S&S.

It's a spiced Pork product. Generally quite fatty since the fat is needed for most recipes containing Chorizo (eg to mix egg and chorizo for what actual Mexicans eat for a breakfast burrito).

I have no idea what you were looking at at the grocery store, maybe it was authentic Mexican Chorizo as it is peasant food there, but ground pork should be the main ingredient. You can substitute the Spanish product in most dishes if necessary. It should come in sausage form, which you break up in dishes.

I bought commercial chorizo before from the local Kroger. It came in a sausage tube but it had the consistency of paste. In a skillet about 90 percent of it liquefied, leaving only small chunks of fleshy material behind.

It's pretty low on my list of foods to eat.

If it tastes good I don't care what it is.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

You think hot dogs are made of anything better?

Why don't you check your own reading comprehension.

I'm sure E150GT is well aware you were talking about Chorizo.

Their comparison to hot dogs was certainly referring your naive surprise as to what might be in the mystery meat stuffed into a casing of any sausage. After all, Chorizo and hot dogs are both sausages, with the latter simply American slang for "German sausages."

I steam the sausages on a bed of rice, with a few peas tossed in.
