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 need to try this product. I have never had real chorizo as I too dont eat meat. Chorizo is big where I live so now I can see what all the fuss is about.

  • Jeanette
    December 17, 2018

    December 17, 2018

    December 17, 2018

  • Alli Smith
    December 17, 2018

    MorningStar Farms makes my favorite veggie burgers. I always have a package or two in my freezer. I haven’t tried the chorizo yet. I’ll have to look for it next time I’m grocery shopping.
