Easy Chorizo

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Serves: 4 | Total Time: 30 Minutes

This is one of my favorites when it comes to easy chorizo recipes.

Since I love spicy Mexican sausage in tacos, burritos, quesadillas, or just by itself – this easy chorizo recipe is perfect for evenings when I am not quite sure what to make.

I added the peppers and onions right into the pan with the chorizo when I was cooking it. Because they soak up all the flavors (and colors!) of the chorizo, this recipe becomes the perfect, easy filling for any Mexican-inspired dish. 

If you want (and I do this all the time), you can serve this rendition of the spicy Mexican sausage on a plate all by itself. No messy tacos or burritos needed! Just grab your fork and eat this easy chorizo with sides of homemade guacamole and a cool cucumber salad to balance out the heat.

Oh, and don’t forget to top it with a dollop of sour cream!

RECIPE DIRECTIONS:

3. Add chorizo meat to the skillet with the vegetables. Using a wooden spoon, break it up into small chunks and stir continuously until the juices begin to render, about 5 minutes.

4. Sprinkle the contents of the skillet with Mark’s Seasoning Mix and stir to combine. Cook for another 5 minutes until cooked through.

5. Serve as a filling for your favorite Mexican dish (tacos, burritos, quesadillas, etc.) or by itself as an entree on a plate.
