When someone goes through a Mexican butcher shop and sees the fresh pieces of chorizo hanging, one can believe that this recipe has been prepared in Mexico forever... although the reality is another.
The history dates that in Mexico, in Prehispanic times, the pigs did not exist. The Spaniards were in charge of bringing these animals, as well as the preparation techniques of them.
Among the diverse ways in which the pork is cooked, the chorizo stands out – which was adopted by the Mexicans and with the passage of time this food was prepared in a Mexican way.
The differences that there are between the regular chorizo and the Mexican chorizo, is that in the Mexican version more ingredients are used. Therefore the Mexican chorizo has a flavor that is more condimented and a bit spicy.
