I bought some chorizo last week, and I am trying to figure out what to make with it. I have only ever made 1 thing with chorizo before, and I want to try something different. Anybody have any suggestions?

The traditional way to use Chorizo (around my neck of the woods) is something I'm sure you already know. Chorizo and eggs. Whether you eat them with toast or plop them on a tortilla and make a burrito, that's how people around here eat their chorizo. Of course the same people put chorizo in beans, on the grill, mixed with ground meat for burritos and even put chorizo in their soups and stews.

I ended up using the leftover Chorizo for some scrambled eggs and I put it in a tortilla. It was awesome. I am glad I have another package to use up.

Generously coat a large frying pan with cooking spray. Cook and stir chorizo over medium high heat until well browned and crumbled. Add onion and chile pepper, and continue cooking until onion is tender. 2. Beat eggs in a bowl, and add to chorizo mixture.

Spoon mixture into the middle of each tortilla and top with shredded Cheddar cheese. Roll up like a burrito, and enjoy! -------- Chorizo Burger SUBMITTED BY: BurgerBelly PHOTO BY: Lorikay "An extremely flavorful Spanish style burger made from beef and Spanish chorizo sausage, topped with caramelized onions and smoky red pepper ranch sauce and shavings of Manchego cheese served in sweet brioche buns." INGREDIENTS * 1 pound ground sirloin * 1 pound chorizo sausage * 1 tablespoon vegetable oil * 1 medium onion, chopped * 1 roasted red pepper, quartered * 1 cup Ranch dressing * 1 pinch powdered saffron * 1 teaspoon Spanish paprika * 1 tablespoon vegetable oil * 3 medium onion, sliced * 1 tablespoon brown sugar * salt and pepper to taste * 4 soft egg buns or brioche * 1 tablespoon softened butter * 4 ounces manchego cheese, grated DIRECTIONS 1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground sirloin and chorizo using your hands. Set aside to let the flavors blend. 2. Heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add one chopped onion, and saute until tender. Transfer the onion to a blender, and add the red pepper, Ranch dressing, saffron, and paprika. Pulse until fairly smooth. Refrigerate until needed. 3. Heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and add the remaining onions, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for about 15 minutes until the onions are golden brown. Set aside. 4. Preheat the grill for high heat. Form the meat into four patties, slightly larger than the buns. 5. Place burgers on the grill, and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Split buns in half, and spread butter on the inside. Place on the grill to toast briefly. 6. Place burgers onto buns, and top with caramelized onion and the roasted pepper ranch sauce. Sprinkle with a few shavings of manchego cheese, and place the top of the bun on top.
