grilled freshed chorizo sausage for dinner? what else

Rheta Oct 25, 2010 12:44 PM

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!

    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.

      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.

        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!

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

            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.
