A simple and delicious recipe for Turkey Chorizo - a lightened up version of our favorite Mexican sausage. Can be made in 15 minutes! |

Easy Healthy Chorizo Recipe


Here’s a  healthy, lightened-up recipe for Mexican Chorizo, a smoky spicy and flavorful Mexican style sausage using ground turkey or ground chicken. A delicious addition to breakfast bowls, tacos, scrambles & burritos! Can be made in 20 minutes. Low-carb and GF!



  1. Place all ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. Mix well using your hands.
  3. Store in the fridge, or freeze until ready to use.
  4. To cook, simply brown it in a skillet with a little oil, breaking it up into smaller pieces, like you would ground beef. (Alternately, you could shape into breakfast patties,or burgers, and sear, finishing in the oven if necessary.)
  5. Use in breakfast bowls or tacos, burritos, enchiladas, pizza, quesadillas, nachos, etc.


I generally use 1 teaspoon kosher salt per pound of meat for the best flavor. Feel free to use less. Because chorizo is generally added to other things to enhance flavor, I like mine a little on the salty side. Adjust to your own tastes.
