Tasty Tips

Traditional Mexican chorizo is a raw highly seasoned pork sausage often utilized in dishes for its flavor and drippings. The plant-based version used in this recipe adds the same punch of flavor yet is suitable for a vegetarian diet.

Vegan chorizo is available in the alternative meat section or freezer aisle of well-stocked grocery stores.
