Spanish Chorizo

Where to find? Preferably a brand without fillers, sugar, corn syrup, etc.
Palacios is the most ubiquitous of these.
Thank you

  1. Is there a particular part of California you're hoping to find this in?

      Ah, thank you for pointing out my idiocy.
      San Diego area.
      I would say think of this board as SD but that is a poor excuse at this point.

    2. I have ordered it from here:

      Excellent, I would highly recommend.

      You might try that market next to costa brava too.

      But I think most restaurants get it from the link I gave you.

      1. About a year ago I found some at a Cost Plus World Market. It's a domestically made version, so not the real thing, but tastes pretty close. The Pata Negra has Jamon Iberico, so that's a good reason to visit.

        1. I go to La Espanola quite a bit. The both make their own sausages and ham but also import. Not sure but believe they are without fillers. Quite good and a huge selection.

          You can order and have delivered to SD.

          1. I live in Northern California (Sacramento), but buy my chorizo from Corralitos market in Watsonville. You can order lots of different types of sausage from them, but, alas, they do not have a web address.

            You can call, though. Check them out on Facebook:
