Chorizo Fried Dumplings

Chorizo Fried Dumplings

I like to make fried dumplings at least once a month. My boyfriend loves them and so does our 4-year-old son. I usually make them with shrimp or pork but lately I've been craving the fusion of Mexican with Chinese food. My boyfriend has a lot of family in Mexicali, where that fusion is a hit. We go there pretty often to visit family, so this mix of cultures is usual for my taste buds and that's why I've decided to make chorizo fried dumplings. I make it the exact same way I usually make pork or shrimp dumplings only I cook the chorizo on the side for a little bit first before I wrap it in the dumpling. My boys loved this new fusion and I have to say I loved it as well. Check out how easy the recipe is and try it out for your loved ones. Let me know how it turned out! MORE + LESS -
