Smoking Goose Mexican Chorizo is made with ground pork, cumin oregano, ancho, and sherry vinegar.
It would be virtually impossible to make a complete list of how chorizo is employed in Mexican cuisine. Some of the most common uses:
- Scrambled eggs: Fry chorizo in a skillet, drain off excess fat, then add lightly beaten eggs and cook and stir until eggs are set. Eat as is (with tortillas and sliced avocado) or use to fill burritos or tacos.
- Taco filling: Combine with diced, cooked, or sautéed potatoes as a filling for tacos, enchiladas, empanadas, or pambazos.
- Queso Fundido: Mix with melted cheese to make queso fundido (also called choriqueso). Use as a dip or spread on tortillas, tostadas, or bread.
- Topping: Top sopes, tostadas, nachos, or Mexican pizza.
- Refried beans: Stir into refried beans to eat as a side dish or as a spread for molletes or tortas.
- Stuffing: Combine with other ground meats and use to stuff a roasted turkey or other fowl.
- Tinga: Add to shredded beef to make tinga.
- Frijoles Charros: Combine with cooked beans, tomatoes, onions, and seasonings.
- Soup: Used sparingly as a flavorful ingredient in certain hearty cream soups such as bean soup.
