At Chorizo de San Manuel, we focus on recipes that include our beef and pork chorizo, but if you enjoy a delicious chicken sandwich, then we have a recipe that you’re going to love!

Just like our other Texas brand of chorizo, our chicken chorizo is made with 100% natural ingredients and does not contain any additives, preservatives, or artificial coloring.
