To begin, you will need 8 ounces of chorizo sausage. Ideally you would want bulk sausage, but if you can only find sausage links, you’ll want three that are about bratwurst sized. If you are using those, slice open the casings and take out the filling.

Sauté the sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat until it is cooked through and crispy. While it cooks, use your spoon to break up the sausage into little bits and stir it continually.

Scoop the sausage from the skillet, place it on a plate that is lined with a paper towel.
