The Instacart guide to chorizo
Chorizo is a cured pork sausage popular in Mexican and Spanish cooking. It's spicy with a rich flavor that is delicious whether you have it on its own or use it to complement other foods such as fish, vegetables, or other meat. The richness of the fatty pork in chorizo is cut with the sweet and smokey flavor of paprika in Spanish versions, while Mexican chorizo has chili peppers, coriander, cloves, cumin, and cinnamon along with the paprika.
Chorizo falls into two main categories, and both have a unique blend of flavors.
Most Mexican chorizo comes fresh and raw. It's usually made with ground pork, and although it is sometimes briefly fermented, it is rarely cured. You can find it in a casing similar to regular sausage, but you can't eat the casing, and it needs to be removed before cooking.

Spanish chorizo looks much like salami or pepperoni. It is dry-cured, with lots of bold flavors and a smokey taste. You can find Spanish chorizo in varieties ranging from mild to very spicy. It does not need any further cooking — just slice and enjoy. Spanish chorizo also comes wrapped in a casing. It is sometimes edible, but if it's white and chalky, peel it off before eating.
When you look at Spanish chorizo, it will have fat pockets. These are a sign of quality and add great flavor to the sausage. These fat pockets are the reason you don't want to cook it at high temperatures or for a long time because it will melt out the fat.
