Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb spaghetti (cooked 1 minute less then package instructions)
  • 1 lb Mexican chorizo (raw)
  • 5 scallions (chopped)
  • 1 handful cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 lime (juice and zest)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 reserved pasta water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat a pot on high heat. 
  • Next add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin oil and the chorizo to the hot pot. 
  • Now break up the chorizo with a spoon or potato masher and spread the chorizo out on the bottom of the pan. 
  • Cook the chorizo without mixing it at all for 2 minutes. Not mixing the chorizo  helps form a crispy crust. Then mix for an additional 30 seconds to make sure the chorizo is cooked through.
  • Now mix in the pasta for a minute making sure to coat all the pasta with the chorizo and its juices. 
  • Optional: add some pasta water to form more of a sauce if too dry.
  • Next add the scallions, cilantro, and lime juice and zest. 
  • Mix to combine everything and enjoy!
