Types of chorizo Empty Types of chorizo

Post by ComputerGuy on Thu Apr 25, 2013 1:34 pm

My first wonderful experience with chorizo came as an ingredient on my first pizza in Mexico, in a little place across from a hotel in Ajijic, near the plaza (can you guess?). I'd never had it before... it was SO much better than a lot of sausage toppings I've had over the years.

Lately I have been buying various brands to see which ones I might like the best. Most of the commercially-available stuff is awful; many have too much red dye, too much fat, not enough flavour. I rate Capistrano the best; Bafar next, and at the bottom, Zwan.

So I picked up some of Cesar's Mexican chorizo at Tony's this week. Outasight. Best one yet, by far. At about 12 pesos for two links, I won't bother testing any more.

The Corona and Nayar brands aren't bad,Corona seems less fatty,but there are lots of chorizo caseros that are good.

"Canadian Bacon"doesn't cut it at all for this Yank,I can't understand why you folks even refer to it as bacon.

Doesn't cut it? Why? (Now, let's make sure we're talking about BACON, and not peameal or back or any of that other stuff that Americans think we wallow in...)

One would think so... except I didn't bother trying it. Anything with Fud on the label sucks big time. How can a company make processed meat even faker than it already is? Fud seems to know how.

That is the absolute truth!!! Cannot be beat and so cheap it's practically free. Ask for it to be sliced #5 on the machine. mmmmm

The best chorizo I've ever had anywhere is the chorizo on the rebar smoked out at the 'smoked meat guy' place at the crucero outside of Joco. omg

The best chorizo is from its country of origin: Spain. The Spanish use smoked and dried red peppers, which gives the sausage that smoky flavor and red coloring. (The Mexicans use chili peppers instead, which produce a completely different flavor.) As for varieties, in Spain there are two basic types: a fattier chorizo for cooking and a leaner, harder chorizo for snacking on (say, at tapas bars.) My wife has been able to find good chorizo, imported from Spain, at Costco.
