About Chorizo:

Chorizo is commonly used throughout Europe as a seasoning — it's often cut into very small chunks and allowed to render down, resulting in melt in the mouth pork as well as a real kick of flavour to any dish.

Chorizo is used in Portugal, too, but is more commonly named 'Chourico'. In Portugal, it tends to be left in pieces as opposed to melted down, and is used in the same way chicken or beef would be used, in that it's almost used as an extra meat instead of a flavour.

Chicken is often paired with chorizo as it's quite a delicately flavoured meat and therefore takes on other flavours really well. You'll find many chicken and chorizo recipes above, including a pasta dish and a paella dish.

If you can't get hold of chorizo sausage, either make your own or use a good Italian spicy sausage instead. Look for varieties that contain a lot of paprika and you'll be on the right track!
