Chorizo Verde in Boston?


Anyone know of a source for chorizo verde - green chorizo.. its a niche product, generally associated with Toluca in Mexico. Its made with pine nuts, cilantro..

I was in DF recently and missed a chance to try some while I was closer to the source.

  1. Never seen it hereabouts. It's hard enough to get plain Mexican chorizo around here!

    1. Good luck! When I lived on the west coast, I frequently asked Mexicans where they bought it in the states, most had never heard of it. I saw it on a Rick Bayless show and have been looking for it for years.

      1. I've never seen it but here's a link to a recipe that doesn't look terribly hard..

        To stay Boston Centric, there is a market on Meridan St.. E Boston first block on the right walking from Maverick Station that makes a tasty Combian chorizo, interesting with a good dose of cumin.

        1. Never heard of it, although I am intrigued. I thought chorizo was a 'blood sausage'. So what animal has green blood? heh heh.

          can't wait to try it; sounds great.

            Some kinds of reptiles. Also Vulcans.

            But actually, no, chorizo is not a blood sausage.

              Morcilla is blood sausage.. and chorizo verde is green from cilantro and other herbs.
