This Mexican-style chorizo recipe is easier than you might’ve expected. All you need is a pack of ButcherBox ground pork, some spices, and your hands. Enjoy!
Chorizo is a staple in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American cuisine. Though it’s difficult to trace the origin of the sausage, some think that chorizo as we know it originated in Catalonia. Mexican-style chorizo differs from its European counterpart in that the pork is typically fresh versus the smoked Spanish chorizo.
