Prep 15 minutes


6 ounces chorizo sausage, casein removed

3 ounces panko bread crumbs

1 teaspoon Hot Smoked Paprika Powder "La Chinata" Tin

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

1/2 teaspoon cumin powder

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

2 ounces goat cheese

2 stalks green onion, thinly sliced into rings

Choice of sliced peppers, green onion or cilantro sprigs for garnish


Cook chorizo sausage according to package directions. Drain and set aside.


Meanwhile, mix the panko, paprika, granulated garlic, and cumin. Set aside on a flat plate.


Using a food processor blend the cooked chorizo, cheeses, onion and 1 tablespoon of the chipotle salsa until it forms a ball. Removing one tablespoon of mixture at a time, roll into a ball, flatten a bit and then lightly coat in egg (shake off any extra) and then coat in the pasta chip crumbs. Repeat with egg and crumbs once again. Fry without overcrowding in 325 degree oil, turning to brown on both sides. Repeat until all of the cheese is fried.


Serve the balls on pasta chips with chipotle salsa and garnish. 


Notes: use grated and soft cheeses of choice, shredded smoked cheddar and cream cheese. Feel free to add chopped cilantro or minced jalapenos to the cheese mixture. To give the salsa a creamy flavor, blend with 4 to 6 ounces of sour cream. Don’t forget to save some for yourself! Enjoy!
