Made some chorizo at home, tasted awful.

ns1 | Jan 3, 2013 01:06 PM

Bought some chorizo at the market - there are 2 options, one that has 8g fat per serving and one that has 30g fat per serving.

I opted for the lower fat. Threw it on a cast iron skillet and tried to fry it up a bit or w/e and get some texture but it just ended up tasting like mush. Did not taste ANYTHING like the chorizo tacos we get from the trucks.

1. Is it because I got the low fat chorizo!?!?
2. How do I make chorizo tacos like they do at the trucks? What is the secret to preparing the chorizo?
