Here's a link for a bunch of sausage recipes I copied from another member.

Try this. Cook some minced aromatics in reserved chorizo drippings, add in some balsamic, strain if you want, and whisk to make a warm chorizo balsamic vinaigrette. Keep it in a squirt bottle, try it on pretty much anything it's like liquid gold. kale, portabella mushrooms, salads, French fries, waffles, shrimp and grits. Go wild.

I stumbled across this recipe today. I haven't made it, but I copied it as it looks do-able and tasty. Chorizo is not usually in my sight line and since it currently is in yours, I thought I should pass it on.

Spanish Saturday! A Simple & Spicy Tapas Lunch Recipe: Patatas a la Riojana.

Queso fundido ( baked melted cheese) is good with a little chorizo crumbled on top to cook as the cheese melts and the chorizo oils are released. Serve with tortilla chips and salsa.

Are you thinking in terms of the salami type chorizo that you can eat as-is or the sausage-type which has to be cooked?

Chorizo goes well sliced up into a tomato sauce (for pasta) and very gently simmered until tender. (I like to add chopped up courgettes to). Chorizo easily goes hard if cooked on too high a heat.

Lift the skin on chicken portions or a whole one and slip slices of chorizo between the skin and the meat. Cook as usual. Also, Google Delia Smith 'Basque Chicken' it's divine!!

Are you thinking along the lines of Mexican chorizo which can be used as a bulk sausage or stuffed in casings? It is considered a fresh sausage. Spanish chorizo is generally a cured, dried sausage.
