I personally love the subtle kick of heat you get from chorizo.  It’s what makes these muffins so delicious. But, if a kick isn’t your thing, you could make these chorizo muffins with sausage instead, for a more mild flavor.

Ingredients for parmesan chorizo muffins

What ingredients do I need to make parmesan chorizo muffins?

  • Self-rising flour – if you don’t have self rising flour, use flour and add 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • Eggs – eggs will help bind the batter together
  • Milk – used in the base of the batter
  • Shredded parmesan – the perfect cheese to compliment chorizo or sausage
  • Chorizo – you’ll need one link.  If your chorizo is one long rope, it will be about 5 inches.
  • Salt – always a dash to help tie it all together

Mixing parmesan and chorizo into muffin batter

Before I publish a recipe on the blog, I always test it multiple times and I’m glad I did with this one specifically.  When I first made it, I gently folder the chorizo into the mixture, but it is actually much better to be sure to thoroughly stir in the chorizo because it helps distribute the chorizo better throughout the muffins – that way you get a bit in each bite!

I note this in the recipe card, but in case you miss it, these muffins use a self-rising flour.  If you don’t have a self-rising flour, you can simply use flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Once the chorizo muffins are done baking, I have a quick tip to share:

  • If you don’t have a cooling rack, simply pop the muffins part way out of the pan.  This allows the residual cooking to stop.
