I would like to try this popular item and invite you to offer your favourite means of utilizing
this Portuguese delicacy.
Just as an FYI, it's also used in Spain, Colombia, and other parts of SA. I just had some Colombian with a strong cumin flavor.
My "lazy man's" dish I discovered when I was in a hotel room with only a microwave..but some poblano or long peppers, or whatever you like. Slice it and stuff with the chorizo..some cheese..and nuke. Add hot sauce to taste.
I also like it in a tortilla, on a pizza, Pretty much good whatever you do to it..:)
it's also fantastic addition to scrambled eggs, and goes really well with chicken or shrimp & rice.
Just a point of clarification. Isn't chorizo Spanish/Latin American and Chorico, Portuguese/Brazilian? I love them both. I just brought back a load of fresh and smoked chorizo and charqui from Austin, Tx. But when we visit mom in the NYC area we bring back chorico and linguica. Am I getting senile or am I correct?
In addition to paella, it's great in jambalaya, chopped and mixed in with scrambled eggs, and while I haven't made it, would be great in a calzone with Monterey Jack cheese and maybe black beans.
