AUSTIN, MINN. — Hormel Foods Corp. is adding a new savory option to its line of ready-to-use pepperoni products with the launch of Hormel Sliced Chorizo.

Made with premium ingredients and authentic spices like pimento, peppers and garlic, Hormel’s chorizo was designed as both a quick snack and a convenient way to elevate homecooked meals. The product is now available in 5-oz packages, expected to retail around $4.50, in-stores nationwide.

“We know that consumers are increasingly eager to explore new and diverse flavors,” said Vernon Neitzell, brand manager for Hormel’s Pepperoni unit. “Our new Hormel Sliced Chorizo is bursting with flavor and can instantly elevate a Friday night flat bread meal, snacking occasion, or everyday panini. It's a simple and delicious way to add a spark of culinary excitement to any dish.”
