Chorizos are super delicious and perfect for a quick meal. They come from all over; Spain, Mexico, Argentina and many other places in South America. They are made with a blend of meats or pork, spices, lots of Paprika and peppers. Some are mild and others spicy hot. They can be fully cooked, smoked, dry-cured or fresh and ready to cook.
Chorizos are like sausages and every country has their favorite sausage. For instance; Germans have Bratwurst, in USA we have Hot Dogs, Spain has cantípalo, there is a popular one called chistorra, which is of Basque origin. Finally, butifarra, and salchichón are popular in South America and the Caribbean.
The ones in today’s recipe are Argentinian, (the thick ones) and Chistorra (the thin ones) and they are the fresh uncooked type. You can find them in many grocery stores or Latin Markets in the meats department.
Approximate prep and cooking time: 20 minutes
Approximate Cost: $8.25 (or $2.06 per serving)
