Mexican Chorizo

Original Spanish chorizo is made from coarsely chopped pork and seasoned with paprika and garlic. Most South American chorizos are of a fresh type which is fried for breakfast or grilled on a fire. Mexican Chorizo is a fresh sausage made from ground pork and seasoned with chili peppers, garlic and vinegar. It is moister and much hotter than the Spanish chorizo.
