What is chorizo?

There are different types of chorizo however for today’s recipe we are using Mexican chorizo.

Mexican chorizo is a spicy pork sausage made from spices and dried chili peppers.

The dried chili peppers are what gives the chorizo it’s red color.

While you may be able to find it at your regular grocery store chains it won’t be anywhere near as good as from the carnicería.
