There are many different chorizos in the world but they all have one thing in common: flavor, and lots of it.


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and use your hands to mix everything together.
  2. Spray a frying pan with nonstick spray and brown the chorizo over medium-high heat until it’s cooked through and the edges are brown and crispy about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Stuff the chorizo into tacos, toss it in a breakfast hash or sprinkle it on top of our [Individual Chorizo, Kale, and Goat Cheese Pizzas](https://www.workingagainstgravity.com/articles/individual-chorizo-kale-goat-cheese-pizza).

You can also portion out servings of the raw chorizo and freeze them in Ziploc baggies or plastic wrap.
