What is Chorizo?

Chorizo is a Spanish word and usually means beef or pork sausage. There are many variations of Chorizo but I’m using Spanish Chorizo del Consorcio for this delicious scrambled egg brunch for busy mums.

Why is chorizo so red?

Spanish Chorizo is often seasoned with smoked paprika which gives it the red color. This tasty Spanish meat is so delicious with so many different meal options. The color of your chorizo will certainly not ruin the flavor that comes when you whip up this delicious brunch recipe for mum.
