Chorizo verde

Does anyone know where to buy chorizo verde in the Bay Area?

  1. Are you asking about this specialty from Toluca?

    1. Cosecha in Oakland has made it.

      1. If you can't find a place to buy it, this recipe looks super easy. And Bayless is, IMO, really spot on.

        And thanks for bringing this up cause now I want to make it :)

        1. There's a grocery store on 24th Street in SF, near Alabama Street, that sells it. It's on the south side of the street -- the butcher is in the back of the store on the right. I can't remember the name of it.

          I bet most of the grocery stores in that area sell it.

          1. Franco Dunn of One World Sausage makes this specialty of Toluca some times. He sells at the Healdsburg and Santa Rosa farmers markets.

              I bought a pack of the Chorizo Verde ($12) last weekend at the Healdsburg farmers Market and grilled them over mesquite for some friends. These are made with heritage pork, spinach, pumpkin seeds, cilantro and serrano chiles, and have a lovely bright green color when raw.
