This fresh chorizo is freakin amazing!
Mad Creations Authentic 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.

  • Transfer to a bowl. Chill for at least 3 hours or leave overnight to develop more flavour.
  • Cook in a hot pan until flecked with tasty charred bits. The sausage can be shaped into patties or sausages if you prefer.


  • Blend dried guajillos until it is a fine powder. Transfer to a skillet.
  • Add achiote, salt, cumin, coriander, paprika, cinnamon, and oregano. Dry fry over medium-high heat until fragrant. Remove immediately and place into a large bowl.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix well with your hands until all the seasonings are mixed through.


The mix can be cooked like regular mince: serve as nachos, tacos, or with keto tortillas from my book Savour
Alternatively, shape them as small sausages on a kebab stick and grill on a barbecue or in an oiled frypan.
