“This popular soup from the Oaxaca region of Mexico features chorizo, a coarsely ground pork sausage flavored with chili powder, garlic, and other seasonings. Included is a recipe for simple, homemade Mexican Chorizo that's easy to put together (better yet, it can be prepared the day before). You can substitute a soft commercial chorizo that is found in most supermarkets, but it will be higher in fat. Recipe is from Cooking Light; overnight marination is not included in preparation time.”
