Soy chorizo at Trader Joe's

escondido123 | Oct 22, 200801:06 PM     30

I live in Southern California where Mexican style chorizo is readily available. I love the spice and flavor of it, but am trying to cut back on meat and fat. So when I saw Soy Chorizo at my local Trader Joe's I had to try it. It is incredible. The exact flavor and texture of pork chorizo without the guilt or the grease. It's become my favorite quick lunch. Browned up with some onion, then put on a flour or corn tortilla with chopped tomatoes and a big dollop of 0% fat Greek yogurt, also a new favorite from TJs that has the richness of sour cream without the fat. It is a spectacular combo, and would be great in enchiladas too.
