Prep Time 5 mins

Cook Time 10 mins

Total Time 15 mins


  • 1 lb chorizo sausage (casing removed)
  • 1/4 cup fat drippings
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)

For serving

  • 12 freshly baked biscuits (see link in notes for recipe)


  1. Brown chorizo in a saute pan until cooked through and fat has rendered out.
  2. Remove chorizo from skillet, reserving 1/4 cup of fat drippings in the pan. Turn off heat to allow pan to cool slightly.
  3. Sprinkle flour in the pan and whisk continually while cooking on medium heat to prevent burning. Cook for 5 minutes (this eliminates the raw flour taste).
  4. Slowly add milk to flour mixture, stirring as it is added to prevent clumps.
  5. Sprinkle in cheese in batches while continuing to stir.
  6. Add sausage back to the skillet and continue cooking until gravy has thickened, then add hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve on top of freshly baked biscuits.
