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.



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!



Made this with venison and it turned out great!! Just be sure to remove all fat before combining.
