  • 1 lb chorizo beef or pork
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 7 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 C brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • In a medium skillet, break down chorizo and fry until cooked; add oil as necessary. Transfer the chorizo to a bowl and set aside.
  • In the same pan you cooked the chorizo, add the onion and garlic and sauté until soft.
  • Add the chorizo, tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, sugar, cayenne and salt to the skillet; simmer on low 10 minutes or until the flavors come together and the mixture thickens slightly.
  • Transfer the jam to a blender (or, using an immersion blender), blend until smooth. Transfer back to skillet and simmer an additional 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the mixture to sterilized jars. Top with canning lid and ring; allow to cool; transfer jars to the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy with eggs, on toast, as an addition to your cheeseboard, or as a condiment on your hamburger. Use within 7-10 days.
