    It's usually a cured and smoked sausage. If it is then you will be fine. If it looks dry and is hard it's cured. If it isn't it will be mushy

    Favorite!

    Saute in a skillet for a long time, broken up like ground beef, until very well cooked. Drain.

    Then, your options are open:

    Sprinkle on top of nachos. Om nom nom.

    Mix in with cream cheese for abts

    Mix in with scrambled eggs for awesome breakfast tacos

    Mix in with refried beans - serve with scrambled eggs for awesome breakfast tacos

    Mix with shredded cheese and stuff pork or chicken.

    Mix in with black beans, with a little pico de gallo to make them edible. :)

    Good stuff! ( Very well done, carmelized little peices or the flavor isn't right)

    If it is dry cured and hard like salami, tou should be good. Uncured, I would be very careful.

  • Good point -

    Spanish chorizo is like pepperoni, should be fine.

    I was talking about Mexican raw chorizo.

    If you're unsure but feel bad about throwing it out, just read the ingredients list.
     
    You're welcome!    
    :D
