Authentic Mexican Keto Fresh Chorizo
You should have some of my Authentic Mexican Keto Fresh Chorizo ready to be used in your fridge each week.
Unlike the dried variety of chorizo, this fresh beautifully spiced chorizo is amazing in so many dishes and I am sure once you try it you will be making kebabs, meatballs, fried chorizo tacos, huevos rancheros and so much more.
It is the spices and a good mix of fat and pork that makes the perfect chorizo. You can use any protein you wish, but please ensure it has a good balance of fats and a healthy dose of spices.
I have been making my own fresh chorizo and many other Mexican dishes for more years than I care to count. It is by far my favourite kind of food, and this recipe is very much part of my repertoire.
