Chorizo Recipes

Chorizo is a heavily spiced pork sausage originating from the Iberian Peninsula. Predominately found in Spanish and Latin cuisines, chorizo is known for its distinctive smokiness and deep red color. Chorizo sausage can be fresh or smoked, depending on the region in which it is found. In Spain, the sausage is often fermented, cured and smoked and can be sliced and eaten without cooking, while in many Latin-American countries chorizo is a fresh sausage that must be cooked before eating and is often cooked along with other foods.
