We think we can all agree that an Asado is not complete without a quality Chorizo. But not all of them are good, and choosing the right one can be a bit tricky. Luckily, we’re here to help you identify and pick the best Chorizo for your weekend Asado.

Meat/Fat ratio: 

You want to keep your Chorizo on the leaner side. It’s easy to tell when you cut it. However, the label should state the meat/fat ratio.


When you cut a quality Chorizo and leave it at room temperature for a while, it starts to sweat a little. Poor quality Chorizos will develop a plastic appearance. 

Natural Casing:

Fresh Chorizos release fat when you put them on grills or pans. However, an excessive amount of fat is not a good sign.

You can find the best Chorizos at Gaucho Ranch! Our favorite is our Argentinian Style Pork Sausages.
