Chorizo is traditionally considered a breakfast food used much like american sausage.  It can be served as a spicy side dish to eggs or combined with eggs or refried beans to make fillings for breakfast burritos.  Many people like to add onion or chopped bits of pepper to further flavoring.

However, unlike some American sausage, chorizo is not meant to be heated in link form.  It should be broken up into small bits; so, if you buy your Chorizo at a store, be sure to take it out of the wrapper before heating.
