The Spanish chorizo comes in quite a few forms, freshly cured, vacuum packed, mini size and huge chorizo "extra tradicional" The home cured chorizo's are sometimes known as cooking chorizo's - mildly cured and can indeed be cooked. Recipes such as apple and chorizo kebabs are a real hit in summer and stews with chorizo are an ideal winter warmer.
Simple chorizo tapas, although these very versatile Spanish sausages can be used in a multitude of recipes to appreciate some real chorizo flavour simply serve them on their own on cocktail sticks.
Watch out for the hot ones!!!
