Fond memories. Lots of them. And they continue to accumulate when I get a call or text from Dad casually mentioning that he has ribs on the BBQ or pork slow roasting for pulled pork sandwiches just in case I wanted to stop by for dinner.
What a question! All this made with such love. Of course I can stop by for dinner!
Mexican-style chorizo is not the same as the hard Spanish style sausage that is dried. Mexican chorizo is a soft, raw sausage that is not in a casing. It is often cooked with skillet potatoes, added to refried beans, soups, simply browned and eaten in a taco to name just a few ideas. Be sure to allow this to "cure" in the refrigerator before using as the longer the chiles and spices have a time to meld, the tastier the chorizo will be. Wait at least 48 hours and up to a week.
