Soy Chorizo

Some people still find it funny and incongruous that a Mexican can be a vegetarian. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore with food manufacturers. I just noticed today that now there are two soy chorizo options for vegetarians made by companies that cater to Mexican tastes. That soyrizo bullshit doesn’t count, its just not very good. I bought this new Cacique version, I expect it to be good but you never know. I’ve been a fan of Reynaldo’s for a long time now but maybe those days are numbered? We shall see.

  1. A few years ago my mom and I were in the grocery store looking for chorizo and I convinced my mom to try out Reynaldo’s soy chorizo because it is healthier, might be better for cooking, etc. She bought it and I’m happy to say that to this day they primarily soy chorizo because, as my mom says, it doesn’t burn as much meat-based chorizo and is leaner. My family are converts!

    I know a few meat eaters that have started using the veggie version just to cut back on meat a bit. Besides, its usually the ground up worst parts of the animal. BTW, this Cacique is pretty good, it’s gonna give Reynaldo a run for his money.

    It took me a couple moments to realize that the chorizo was made of soy. I interpreted “soy chorizo” as “I am chorizo” and assumed it was a slogan. Funnily, if you keep reading it becomes even more spanglish: “Soy chorizo vegetarian.”

    I use to use only Melissa’s brand but now I use Cacique because it’s easier to find. More for you money too, and I like the single ‘link’ packaging far better! I have liked every soy chorizo I have every tried, they are all good.
