Chorizo Substitute Recipe


If you cannot get real chorizo sausage, try using this quick pork sausage substitute flavored with garlic, cilantro, and cumin.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes


  • 1 pound spicy bulk pork sausage
  • 2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


Combine pork sausage, cider vinegar, cilantro, chili powder, garlic, and cumin. Mix well, but do not over-handle.

Form sausage into patties and fry about 4 minutes on each side. Great for breakfast or as an entree with rice and beans.
