Yves Veggie Chorizo. I did something kind of weird to this product that I hope you can all forgive me for. I made nachos!
My exchange student was home from school for some reason, and she wanted nachos. I saw this as a great opportunity to bust out the package of veggie chorizo we had in the fridge and test it out. So (and here comes the bad part) I took a chunk of remaining-nameless processed cheese and melted it down with the chorizo. For valid testing purposes I did taste a bit of the chorizo before mixing it with the cheese, and was a little worried.
Usually, with chorizo, there's some degree of spiciness. Not the case with this one. It was actually a little bit sweet, which didn't bode well for our nachos. I thought maybe, mixed with cheese, the sweetness would subside a bit, but it did not. In fact, even with salsa, lettuce, black olives, and sour cream, there was still a pervasive sweetness that was a bit off-putting. Not terrible, but not great. I definitely prefer other chorizos I've eaten over this one.
Texture - reasonably chewy and interesting
Flavor - totally not spicy - actually a bit sweet
Final grade for this attempt: D
