Chorizo in Nebraska grocery stores...the kind in the long tube package...is TRULY HORRID.
However, La Mexicana market near downtown Lincoln, NE makes great chorizo. It's so flavorful that it can be used not just as a protein but as a flavoring.
And if you haven't been to the market, it's a true treat. Full of great stuff...the sweet rolls are in a case between the meat counter and the restaurant and can't be missed. Though the produce section is small..the cilantro is almost always perfect. There are usually homemade tamales on the front counter on weekend mornings. Yummy.
One caution...the ceiling is covered with pinatas. If you take a child into the store, be prepared to take a pinata out. Just sayin.
