Pronunciation of Chorizo

pronunciation of chorizo
The pronunciation of the Spanish sausage 'chorizo' is something we get asked about quite frequently, in fact we have a relative (who will remain nameless) who just cannot pronounce chorizo!

So, here is how and how not to say 'chorizo'... The main thing to remember is that the Spanish pronounce a 'Z' as 'th' thus making chorizo sound like 'choritho'


Chorizo only has one 'i' so choreezio is a non starter, neither is chorozo, charesso or careezo.
