I saw this in the cooler at Aldi when I stopped to pick up some milk and cereal. We were having tacos for dinner, so I thought I would mix some chorizo in with the beef. The label on the package said "Hot", so I expected it would help spice my tacos up a little. It came in two plastic tubes, a little over a foot long each. It's so red, I thought it was smoked or something, like a kielbasa (which I knew is not how chorizo is supposed to come, but I bought it anyway).
When I opened it, I discovered the plastic tubes, and the rich, fine grained, red paste which they contain. I was cooking a pound of ground beef for my tacos, so I squeezed out half of one tube (about 4 ounces) in the frying pan with the beef and some chopped onion and mashed it all together. When I started cooking it, it filled my pan with a wonderful, spicy, red grease and the vapor coming off of it was intense. I knew that I had made a good choice.
