Chorizo is a chile-garlic flavored sausage much loved in Mexico and the American Southwest, but most of the commercially-available kinds are made with beef byproducts (such as salivary glands) that don't appeal to many folks. Here's a great recipe that uses ground pork, instead. It is a fresh sausage, so cook it thoroughly. It's highly flavored, so a little goes a long way. It is convenient if it is wrapped and frozen in small packages. Chorizo can be used in many ways! For breakfast, saute it and add to scrambled eggs. Fry up some chorizo and add some beans and spices, or grits or potatoes. Add it cooked to your burrito or taco fillings. It also is good to add cooked to a red chile sauce, stew, or any other dishes you'd like to have a nice Mexican flavor.
