Soy Chorizo Fried Rice: An incredible meatless weekday meal.

I live in Los Angeles, one of the largest food meccas in the world.  LA is a melting pot of flavors and is known for an endless combination of fusions. I love that I can hop in my car and reach any type of cuisine within a few minutes. These experiences have carved out a little niche in my culinary heart and help inspire my own home-cooked fusion cuisine.  My most treasured Asian-Latin fusion dishes I make is Soy Chorizo Fried Rice.

Soy Chorizo Fried Rice is the best when you cook with RiceSelect Texmati!

Have A Rice Day! #RiceSelect

I started to rethink my rice dishes after I tasted the one and only, RiceSelect Texmati!!! All RiceSelect products are made with the FINEST ingredients that provide a superior quality, taste, and texture – making it perfect for a wide variety of rice dishes. This was my initial inspiration to making my Soy Chorizo Fried Rice.  It’s basically the only rice I want to cook with these days. The first time I tried RiceSelect Texmati, I couldn’t believe how amazing the taste was. It’s an impeccable blending of traditional American long grain and qualities of basmati with hints of a nutty-popcorny flavor. Delicious! RiceSelect products are the real thing, natural and clean of preservatives, chemicals, added substances, and non-GMO verified too.  No wonder they call it the World’s Best Rice because it is!

Soy Chorizo Fried Rice came to life as I was on my way to a party. I thought a big batch of spicy vegetarian fried rice would be the perfect dish to arrive with. I looked through my pantry and reached for a container of RiceSelect Texmati, pickled jalapeños, onion, corn, and peas. I found soy chorizo (which is perfect for vegans too) eggs, and limes in my fridge. The unification of these ingredients was absolutely magnificent, and I hope you will give it a try.
