Tip: Chorizo is a cooked spicy dry sausage from Spain and is very different from South American and Portuguese chorizo. There are some great brands being made in USA that come very close to authentic Spanish Chorizo. One brand that comes to mind is an all natural chorizo from a company called Primo Natural and it is worth searching out.
