This Mexican chorizo sausage is made from fresh, trimmed pork shoulders (picnics) and a traditional dry spice blend, unlike low-quality, industry-standard chorizos that often contain questionable raw materials.
While it tastes best all by itself, Chorizo is an excellent product to use as an ingredient in Mexican cuisine (tacos, tostadas, quesadillas, burritos) as well as in a wide variety of pasta dishes, soups, omelets, as a pizza topping, as chorizo and eggs, chorizo and potatoes, and in countless other dishes.
The links are portioned perfectly to be used in a 3 egg scramble if removed from the casings.
If you like your chorizo extra crispy, remove it from the casing and fry it directly in a pan or on a flat top. It’s designed to be cooked at a high temperature without burning, and it’s even better when cooked in patties.
Each 5lb. order is approximately 300 links. Each link is approximately 2.7oz and 4-in in length.
These sausages are uncooked and must be cooked thoroughly to a minimum internal temperature of 160 deg. F prior to consumption.
