If using Spanish chorizo, finely chop, then cook in oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. If using Mexican chorizo, remove from casings and cook (without oil) in skillet, stirring and breaking up meat, until bubbling and completely separated, 4 to 5 minutes.
Simply so, what chorizo is made out of?
Spanish chorizo is made from coarsely chopped pork and pork fat, seasoned with pimentón – a smoked paprika – and salt. It is generally classed as either picante (spicy) or dulce (sweet), depending upon the type of pimentón used.
If you can't find Mexican chorizo, spicy Italian sausage is a suitable substitute, although it will add a strong fennel flavor. Spanish chorizo is made with cured or semi-cured chopped pork (usually smoked) and seasoned predominantly with smoky Spanish paprika.
