Tasty little sausages at La Chapincita market in Waltham!

I found them in the refrigerator case in the back right of the shop. A small ziplock baggie with the label : Longaniza Especial. It contained about 7 small links for $3.75.

They were very good and unusual (to me, at least). Raw pork sausages with mint and salty cheese. The cheese was a surprise- it leaked out while cooking into a delicious frico. I think if I make them again, I would not separate the links until after cooking to better try and keep it inside.

The sausages were a little dry, but perhaps I cooked them a bit too long. Still, they were excellent with some rice and beans for dinner.

They also had ready to eat chicken tamales next to the register. They were good, but not great.

But I always enjoy checking out that little shop.

    1. On Fridays they often have fresh chicharrón at the counter. Didn't know about the sausages. I'll pick some up later this week. Thanks for the tip.
