Wow, these chorizo Sloppy Joes are good. I really liked them, but then, I was already a huge fan of Mexican chorizo. I used extra hot chorizo to really crank these up another notch. Use regular chorizo if you’re not into heat. It’s the wonderful flavor of the sausage that makes these special. The heat is an extra bonus.
These are a great twist on the classic Sloppy Joes I grew up on. I’ll never go back to those after having these, that’s for sure!
I love chorizo in darned near everything. If you feel the same way, you’ll also want to make my chorizo fried potatoes.
