I grew up eating authentic, homemade chorizo and /Fiesta flavor Cheesorizo is the best I’ve ever tasted! – Claudia Z, Modesto, CA
After a quick saute in a pan, I shared Cheesorizo as an appetizer with family and friends at a holiday gathering. Everybody loved the taste and surprised that it was a non-meat product. I only wish I had more to serve. – Bob D., Scottsdale, AZ
My husband and I are meat lovers, but at a recent party and taco bar, we went back for seconds on the Cheesorizo Fiesta tacos instead of the meat, it was so delicious! Pam H. Grants Pass, Oregon
