I just re-read the label on a package of chorizo sausage down at the local taqueria. Oh, I knew what was in there, but a little refresher doesn't hurt now and then, just to keep me from trying it. Now, as you may be aware, the contents must be listed in descending order of their abundance in the product. So let's see ... what's most plentiful in this food product? OK, you got your pork lymph nodes. Yum. Followed by pork salivary glands, cheeks, tongue, fat, and other pork by-products (the stuff that, if they told you what it was, you'd spew without even tasting it). Then you got your salt, spices, peppers and the all-important sodium nitrite. Not only delicious, but nutritious, too, eh?
