Cinco de Mayo Breakfast

Have you made your dinner reservations for tonight? Is your mouth already watering at the thought of queso dip, sizzling plates of meat, tres leches and margaritas? Let’s be honest, we’ve all been thinking about tonight’s dinner for a week, but have you thought about breakfast yet? It’s a strange question on a day that is usually all about dinner, but on Cinco de Mayo, A.C. Legg folks start celebrating early with Chorizo and Eggs! If you have never tried chorizo, here are a few reasons to try it now.

Chorizo is a pork sausage that is highly seasoned, typically with vinegar, garlic, and chili peppers. An important preparation hack is to make sure to remove the outer casing before cooking chorizo. Mexican chorizo is made with fresh, raw pork whereas Spanish chorizo can be purchased as fully cooked and dry-to-slice or fully cooked and soft. Both are delicious either way you try it! If you want to go beyond pairing with eggs, chorizo is also delicious when crisped and tossed into a spinach salad or when mixed into a pasta sauce. While chorizo is not considered a “health food,” it is low-carb and fits in a keto diet. It can also be found in Portuguese, Puerta Rican, Panamanian and Filipino cooking. You can even find a vegan version called Soyrizo if you’re looking for the flavor without the meat.

A great Chorizo is a must-have flavor profile for fresh sausage makers and, here at A.C. Legg, we offer two Chorizo seasonings that are bound to spice up your morning. Blend 111, Fresh Chorizo, is an ethnic sausage seasoning used to produce a chorizo with full flavor but less heat. Blend 162, Zesty Chorizo, combines the flavor notes from several styles of Chorizo to promote the best of the best. Bright red chili, cumin, garlic, and a compendium of other South American spices & herbs are blended to perfection in this top-shelf Chorizo Seasoning.
