Soy Chorizo gets rave reviews

Trader Joe's promises that the Soy Chorizo will "level up taco night." As Insider describes, the legendary product consists of seasoned and spicy soy and lentils that can be prepared in no time at all. Best of all? Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo is not only vegan but also gluten-free.

Regular meat-based chorizo "is a highly seasoned chopped or ground pork sausage used in Spanish and Mexican cuisine," according to Epicurious. From reviews, it looks like vegan Trader Joe's shoppers won't have to skimp on those classic flavors and texture. Instagram user @mollysfoodpage posted a photo of her delicious Soy Chorizo-based dish. They wrote, "Finally tried out @traderjoes soy chorizo, and I highly recommend it! It has a really nice spicy flavor." They said that they used the soy chorizo in a homemade recipe with eggs and added a generous serving of kale for maximum deliciousness. The final result? Well, they loved the dish and didn't need any other additional seasoning at all. Instagrammer @reinspired agreed, "It ... is seasoned to perfection so it can be eaten right off the pan."

A Reddit user praised the product and said they would never make tacos with anything else again. They wrote, "It has so much flavor and the texture is amazing. My pre-veg self would have loved it too." If you're looking for ways to use Soy Chorizo beyond taco night, blogger Thyme and Love recommends using this Trader Joe's product for vegan lentil and chorizo soup, cheesy taco pasta, and chorizo bean dip. Sounds perfect, right?
