ISO ideas for using Mexican chorizo

DH went grocery shopping the other day and came home with a package of Mexican chorizo. I've never cooked with this before. I've done some searches and found a couple ideas; DH does not like eggs, so Spanish tortilla isn't an option I'm thinking about trying this one with some of it: Rick Bayless | Chorizo and Potato Tacos | Frontera

I'd love to hear ideas from you all on using Mexican chorizo. Thanks

We do an appi where it gets browned on the stove top and drained. Then small piles are placed in a baking dish, covered with muenster and popped in the oven to melt the cheese. Torn pieces of flour tortillas (nuked) are used to pick up the piles.

Is it authentic chorizo, made with pork salivary glands?

ISO ideas for using Mexican chorizo

Chorizo makes for excellent cheese dip. A nice addition to chili or spaghetti sauce. I usually brown the heck out of it, it's most likely pretty fatty. Mix it in hamburger or meatloaf. One of our vacation places cuts it into coins, browns the heck out of it and puts it on the buffet.

How about some browned and drained in Mexican rice? It's already highly seasoned so I'd just add some tomatoes and onions rather than the Herdez salsa I usually use.
I really like the idea of the cheese dip Dawg.

Sorry, but all my chorizo recipes involve eggs. I use it in huevos rancheros, in breakfast enchiladas, and in my breakfast chimichangas.


If you do find some recipes you like, I can tell you how to make your own chorizo with pork or turkey, or even goat if you are so inclined. It is much better than the commercial product because it doesn't cook away into a pot full of grease.

Pizza, posole, added to ratatouille, sub sandwich with cheese, lettuce, and tomato, scrambled eggs, with seared scallops, with roasted veggies, meatloaf, meatballs--so many things to do with it!
