And, no, we are not talking about eating it plain. You can mix it with eggs and other ingredients to come up with a yummy breakfast burrito.
What Is Chorizo?
Chorizo is a seasoned pork sausage that is commonly used in Mexican or Spanish cuisine. It’s just like the traditional sausage, but it contains more ingredients or spices. That makes it more flavorful than the other sausages that you can get from the supermarket.
This food item has made its way to the United States, as well as Europe, and other parts of the world. Some places offer fermented, cured, and smoked chorizo, and it can be readily eaten or simply added to various dishes. In other countries, though, their chorizo does not undergo the said processes, which then requires the sausage to be cooked first before it can be consumed.
While chorizo can be eaten on its own, mixing it with popular breakfast items like eggs and spices would give you a better meal. Wrap the mixture in a tortilla, and you’ll definitely have the best breakfast burrito, just perfect to start your day!
