grilled freshed chorizo sausage for dinner? what else

I changed my menu due to the fact that after tonight we'll have to batten down the hatches! I thought I'd grill some chorizos and make a salad. What else would go well with chorizo sausages. Thanks so much!

  1. A pan of slow cooked apple onion potato hash would be perfect with the sausages.....

        It's probably a little late for my reply but in case you want to make the dish sometime at a later date, I'll tell you that my method for making this dish is to use as many potatoes as you want to cook. Peel & dice them. Heat a large skillet over medium temperature & coat the bottom with canola oil. Add the potatoes; cook, turning potatoes for five minutes. Depending on the amount of potatoes you're cooking, add 1/4 of the amount of diced onions. Continue cooking & stirring for another 3-4 minutes then stir in diced apples (any kind you prefer with the exception of a bitter or granny smith apple). Again, use 1/4 amount to the ratio of potatoes.

        At this point, stir in some ground cumin, chopped cilantro leaves, fresh chopped celery leaves, s & p. Reduce the heat to medium low; cover skillet and continue to cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes and apples are tender.

    2. Rice and beans or fried plantains would work. Roasted poblano peppers and onions would also be nice.

      1. A stack of tortillas, some beans, and sauteed peppers and onions. Or you could do a veggie paella -- that might be better, since it'll keep!

        1. With Mexican style chorizo, potato is highly traditional. Wrap in 10" flour tortilla with fresh salsa.

          Add scrambled egg, minced scallion and a *little* cheese for a breakfast burrito at supper time.

          Tropical fruit salad with yogurt dressing on the side.

          1. Some succotash is always good with grilled sausages of any stripe...I start mine with a sofrito of onion and red and green bell peppers and garlic, and the add-ins are corn, okra, limas, and cubed tomatoes, with a splash of cream added at the last. An unusual counterpoint in this is adding a dash of ginger; sounds strange, but it's delicious.
