We'd probably put chorizo in everything if we could. It is our number one solution to our dinner looking a little bit dull. Sometimes just eating slices of it is simply our solution to dinner. Here are our top ten chorizo recipes. Standing at the fridge shoving slices into your face is probably our favourite, but read on if you want something more sophisticated.
Chorizo makes cold weather infinitely better. Sure, it's sunny right now but that's pretty changeable. Probably four times in the next half an hour. Don't dismiss the chorizo and tripoline pasta recipe as a winter thing (or our spicy macaroni bake). Don't save the chorizo in red wine for November nights. They're perfect recipes for unexpectedly rainy days. And there's nothing more soothing than our sausage and chorizo soup. It makes a shit day totally disappear.
Most of our chorizo recipes are courtsey of Laura B. She's half Spanish, so she's basically 85% chorizo. That's why we get genius recipes like chorizo and blue cheese QUICHE IN A CUP. This is what microwaves were invented for.
Or how about chorizo and prawns in a tequila sauce? Yes. We'll have all of that. Don't forgot about our quesadillas and empanadilla recipes.
Let's not forget breakfast. You can throw loads of chorizo in our souffle omelette (yes, that does sound quite posh given that it's just whipped up eggs). And you should definitely have a bash at gypsy eggs. They're perfect for when you've got loads of little leftover bits. Sara did huevos rancheros which is basically the same but has no chorizo. So that link basically has no place in this feature. If you've missed breakfast, you could just shove all of the chorizo in a roasted deli baguette. If in doubt, just put everything in a sandwich.
