Native Tucsonan Feng-Feng Yeh created the Tucson Chinese Chorizo Project as a way to retell the story of how Chinese and Mexican communities once thrived throughout the barrios of downtown Tucson. This historic recipe of the Chinese chorizo has been re-created and distributed to local restaurants that are putting a modern spin on this sausage as it is used to highlight the story of its humble past.
