Ohmigosh, can we please just chat for a second about how much I LOVE chorizo?
Now I know, I know, I KNOW what it is made out of traditionally and I know that hey, it’s not the healthier sausage choice for the world. BUT it’s spicy and packs a ton of flavor and I don’t really feel the need to apologize for flavor, you know?
My first run-in with chorizo was in high school. See, every Friday I would treat myself to breakfast out, which usually meant Chick-fil-A or Sunshine Donuts and a massive Diet Coke. Which, by the way, all sounds INCREDIBLE right now. Remind me to eat when I’m done writing this. But there were days where I would stop at Josie’s (another local Lubbock joint) to get two breakfast burritos and a drink. One day I ordered an egg and potato burrito and a sausage/potato burrito when I was informed that the only sausage they had was chorizo…and did I want that instead? Not knowing how my life was going to change I said yes, got an extra thingy of salsa, and went on my merry way to school.
