Recipe Notes

Chorizo is a dry-cured sausage made from finely chopped pork seasoned with garlic, chilli and smoked paprika. Its salty, smokey, slightly sweet flavour means it’s a must-have in Spanish stews, soups and rice dishes, as part of tapas or pan-fried and eaten with hunks of crusty bread and a cold cerveza (beer). Chorizo is speckled with flecks of pork fat, which adds flavour and means there’s no need to use oil when frying it – the fat melts and oozes out during cooking.
