Servings 80 balls


  • 1 lb. chorizo sausage removed from casings and allowed to sit at room temperature 15-20 min.
  • 1 Lb. 4 Cheese Mexican Sargento Shredded two packages
  • 3-ΒΌ cup Bisquick or similar baking mix
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 3-4 shakes of red pepper flakes optional, and according to desired heat


  • Mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl with hands (using food prep gloves) until well blended.
  • Shape loosely into approximately 1” balls and place on baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick spray) with about 1” of space between each ball.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned on bottom.


Makes about 80 balls. Can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 3-5 days or frozen up to 3-4 weeks. Thaw, if necessary and reheat in 375 degree oven about 5 minutes, or until heated thoroughly. These are very flavorful on their own, but if a dipping sauce is desired we recommend a chipotle ranch sauce.
