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.

  • I love shrimp and love how this recipe included Shrimp. It is cute and small and fit into one bite. Love this for finger food for Xmas party.

  • Oh my gosh! Yum! These sound so good – I didn’t know there was a vego option for chorizo, I will definitely need to check it out.

  • Tasty idea with something equally good: chorizo ​​!!! Yummy !!! Your idea is brilliant above all to offer as an aperitif before the family dinner to relatives and friends at Christmas !!! Thank you!

  • this looks like a very different recipe from what we have ever enjoyed. This would work for breakfast, snack, appetizers the ways to serve is endless.

  • This recipe sounds so delicious! It’s amazing how you can taste chorizo but the crumbles are totally vegan. I am not a vegetarian, but I’d like to try them. I love chorizo.
