What is Chorizo?

Chorizo is a delicious type of sausage that comes from Spain and Latin America.

Chorizo is made from ground pork (and sometimes beef) that’s been seasoned with a blend of spices like paprika, garlic, and chili powder. It has a distinctive smoky flavor and is often used in dishes like paella, tacos, and chili.

Chorizo is a very versatile sausage. You can grill it up on the barbecue for an easy summer dinner or fry it up in a pan to add some extra flavor to your breakfast eggs. It makes a great addition to breakfast burritos! It also makes a great queso!

If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even try making your own chorizo at home. All you need are some good-quality meats and spices (plus a sausage stuffer if you really want to get fancy).

Ingredients for Queso with Chorizo

Chorizo – pick good chorizo! I like Johnsonville if I can’t find it at the meat counter. Your options for Chorizo really vary based on where you live. When I lived in Arizona, it was incredibly easy to find great chorizo but here in Minnesota, I have to really hunt it down. However, I’ve found Johnsonville works great if I can’t find it at the meat counter.

Also, if you have kids be sure to taste the chorizo for spiciness! Or stick with a brand or type that is less spicy if you have lots of kids at the gathering!

Velveeta Cheese – grab a big ol’ block of Velveeta cheese. You can’t beat this for its melty, gooey goodness!

Rotel – Rotel tomatoes aren’t just regular diced tomatoes so please don’t substitute. Get Rotel!
