My fabulous Sister-in-Law Rosie, introduced us to these Chorizo + Shrimp Tostones Bowls, a couple of years ago. I’ve tried to recreate them, without the chorizo (since I stopped eating meat), but I just couldn’t get the flavor right. Until now.

MorningStar Farms® Chorizo Crumbles were EXACTLY what I’ve been missing. I whipped up a test batch, served them to our neighbors and they couldn’t tell that they were meatless! They even came back for seconds.

MorningStar Farms Chorizo Crumbles are vegan, but you don’t have to be vegan or vegetarian to enjoy them. Shrimp + Chorizo Tostones Bowls make the perfect appetizer for any occasion. Your guests will be begging you for the recipe! You can find them in the frozen foods section at Walmart.
