Told you this was a simple recipe! When I say simple I mean it. Whip these up before the big game starts and dive right in. 

What is Chorizo sausage? It’s Made of Pork. Chorizo is a highly seasoned chopped or ground pork sausage used in Spanish and Mexican cuisine. Mexican chorizo is made with fresh (raw, uncooked) pork, while the Spanish version is usually smoked.

If you haven’t used Chorizo in recipes…stop what you’re doing and get crackin! It is the BEST! You’ll be simply amazed at how much flavor Chorizo adds to “Mexican” dishes. Everything from nachos to dips, it adds an immensely fantastic flavor.

What else can I put Chorizo in?

  • Eggs
  • Rice
  • Burritos
  • Dips
  • Potatoes

 

Now that’s a bite of deliciousness, am I right? Please don’t worry about these being too spicy, Chorizo adds a nice kick but not too much spice. 

Some tips for making Cheesy Chorizo Bites:

  • Cook the Chorizo ahead of time and refrigerate to assemble later in the day.
  • Cut the dough into smaller pieces and fill with less filling for smaller bites. Cook in a mini-muffin pan and reduce cooking time by a few minutes.
  • Serve alongside sour cream for dipping.

Thanks for the useful information on credit repair on this excellent blog. What I would advice people is to give up the particular mentality they will buy today and pay out later. As being a society many of us tend to do this for many things. This includes holidays, furniture, as well as items we wish. However, it is advisable to separate your wants from all the needs. When you're working to improve your credit rating score you have to make some sacrifices. For example you can shop online to economize or you can turn to second hand shops instead of pricey department stores intended for clothing.
