As in a lot. No, not just a little bit of a lot. But a lot of a lot. ¡Un chingo! Some might say. ¡Un chorro! To be more color de rosa with our choice of words. Not that you have to be of course.
It had been a long while since I had heard anyone say this word anymore, but just the other day someone uttered it to me in a very matter of fact way. Immediately I was jotting it down on my notes. “Now there’s a great Mexi-Vocabulario word,” I thought as I profusely jotted down chorro between the words chapeada and mandilon on my ever growing list!
My trusty friends over at the Urban Dictionary (being sarcastic there) define chorro as:
juaSpanish for the “ishts” or diareah; aka hershey squirts.
Uhm… Ewww! ¿Cómo la ven? What’s your definition of the word?
¡Ya me dieron un chorro de ganas de saber!
I’m always on the hunt for new mexi-vocabulario.
What other words would you like me to include in the mexi-vocabulario? If you have one that you would recommend please share it with me here.
Writer’s Disclaimer: When I say mexi-vocabulario I don’t necessarily mean these words are exclusively Mexican, or only used by Mexicans. This is simply an expression of how they were introduced to me in our Mexican Spanish.

When I first read the word “Chorro”, I thought “Poor Juan. Esta enfermo del estomago!” Because that’s the first thing that came to mind. LOL To me, decir “Tengo chorro!” doesn’t sound as bad as “Tengo diarrea!” 😛
Like you said, “Chorro” can also be used to mean “mucho”, like “Me gusta tu blog un chorro!”
Tambien se usa como, “Ese guey habla puro chorro!” (Que habla mucho pero no dice nada o dice puras mentiras.)
But the main definition of “Chorro” is a stream of water from a faucet, water hose, or fountain. For example….I’m always complaining about el chorrito de agua que sale de mi regadera.
I need to start writing down the words I hear or use that I think would be great for your Mexi-Vocabulario lessons. 🙂
Leslie, your post had me literally cracking up. You’re right! I use chorro like that too nomas que I didn’t want to share 🙂 Please please please share your Vocabulario finds with me!
