Ingredients:

  • 10 biscuits
  • 2 tubes (9 ounces each) of Cacique pork chorizo
  • 1/2 medium-sized white or yellow onion, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups of whole milk

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prepare the biscuits according to the instructions on the package or follow your preferred biscuit recipe.
  2. While the biscuits are baking, heat a large sauté pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chorizo. Use a spatula to break it apart as it cooks. Add the finely diced onions and cook for about 7 minutes until the chorizo begins to brown.
  3. Stir in the all-purpose flour and cook for another minute, stirring occasionally until the flour is fully incorporated.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Gradually pour in the whole milk, stirring constantly. Simmer the mixture for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often, until it thickens to your desired consistency.
  5. Once the biscuits are done, ladle the chorizo gravy over them. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the biscuits with the warm chorizo gravy.

Expert Tips and Tricks:

  • For extra flavor, try adding a dash of smoked paprika or cayenne pepper to the chorizo gravy.
  • If you prefer a spicier gravy, use hot chorizo instead of mild.
  • To make this dish vegetarian-friendly, substitute soy chorizo for the pork chorizo.

Variations:

  1. Add diced bell peppers or jalapeños to the chorizo gravy for a pop of color and heat.
  2. Top the biscuits and gravy with shredded cheese for an extra indulgent twist.
  3. Serve the chorizo gravy over scrambled eggs or roasted potatoes for a hearty breakfast hash.
  4. Mix in cooked crumbled bacon or sausage to the gravy for added meatiness.
  5. For a lighter option, use turkey chorizo instead of pork.
  6. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro or green onions for a burst of freshness.
  7. Drizzle with hot sauce or salsa for an extra kick of flavor.
  8. Swap out the biscuits for cornbread or toast for a delicious alternative.
  9. Experiment with different types of cheese in the gravy, such as cheddar or pepper jack.
  10. For a decadent brunch, serve the biscuits and chorizo gravy alongside mimosas or bloody marys.

What to Serve With:

  1. Fresh fruit salad
  2. Hash brown potatoes
  3. Scrambled eggs
  4. Avocado slices
  5. Sautéed spinach
  6. Breakfast sausage links
  7. Roasted vegetables
  8. Grits or polenta
  9. Baked beans
  10. Crispy bacon strips

Freezing Instructions:

  1. Allow the biscuits and chorizo gravy to cool completely before freezing.
  2. Place the biscuits in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Once frozen, transfer the biscuits to a resealable freezer bag or airtight container, removing as much air as possible to prevent freezer burn.
  4. Pour the chorizo gravy into a freezer-safe container, leaving some space at the top for expansion.
  5. Label the containers with the date and contents, then store them in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Reheating Instructions:

  1. To reheat the frozen biscuits, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until heated through and crispy.
  2. Meanwhile, transfer the frozen chorizo gravy to a saucepan and reheat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until warmed through. You may need to add a splash of milk or broth to thin out the gravy if it has thickened during freezing.
  3. Once the biscuits are heated and the gravy is warmed through, assemble the biscuits and ladle the chorizo gravy over the top.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious meal!
