"The ingredient list is long, but the spices come together quickly. It probably seems like a lot of heat but after you mix it in the with other ingredients, it tones down a lot. You may even want to add more spice! Vital wheat gluten is the protein found in wheat. It is the base for seitan, and can be found at Whole Foods and other heath food stores. You can also order online through places like Bob’s Red Mill. I get it at Ingles and Walmart. When you wrap them to bake, be careful not to get them too tight. This seitan version of chorizo is just as good as the “real” thing. I actually prefer it because it isn’t so greasy. Not to mention the nutritionals are a million times better. From Sprint2thetable."

"This is pretty tasty! I made a bunch of substitutions just because I was using what I had. (In case you're interested, I subbed the chile powder and dried red chili pepper for 2 chiles in adobo sauce, chickpea flour for brown rice flour, tomato paste for 1/2 cup marinara sauce, and I added 1/4 cup wheat gluten and 2 Tbsp brown rice flour since there was a lot of extra liquid from using the marinara sauce).<br/><br/>I will say the nutritional info that shows up when you print out the recipe is all wrong. Per serving, there is actually 160 calories, 14g carbs, 2g fat, 23 g protein, 460mg sodium and 1 g sugar. (This is using the substitutions I made, noted above, but would be similar)."
