A Vegan Alternative
You may not be a meat eater, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the spiciness of authentic chorizo sausage. Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo is our vegetarian-friendly version of this traditional Mexican sausage. It's made just for us by a small company that specializes in chorizo—they really do spend all their time focusing on chorizo, and we're pretty sure that's why this meat-free version is so authentic-tasting.
The authenticity comes from the spices—the same spices that have made traditional pork chorizo so famous—but the healthy attributes come from the soy protein. Our Soy Chorizo has no cholesterol and 60% less fat than traditional chorizo. Add it to scrambled eggs and make a quick breakfast burrito. Or sauté it with oven roasted potato wedges for an intriguing brunch time side dish that will have your guests raving.
We're selling each 12 ounce package of Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo for $1.99. You'll find it in our refrigerated cases. (Note: Please remove Soy Chorizo from its plastic sleeve—this is not sausage casing and trust us, it is not edible.)
