The Carmelita "Chorizeros" (Sausage Makers) Semi-Pro baseball team was started in 1946 and with their long winning streaks and numerous regional championships, baseball historians have referred to the Chorizeros as the "Yankees Of Los Angeles"
In the late 1940's, the nine Pena Brothers all played every position for the Carmelita "Chorizeros" (Sausage Makers) while being coached by their father William Pena. Their story was published on "Ripleys Believe It or Not."
I have been eating Carmelitas Chorizo since I was a kid. I have tried many other chorizos over the years but Carmelitas just has the flavors I expect from Chorizo. Nothing else compares.
