Hi José, a clavo is a clove in English if you're talking about the spice, a nail if you're talking about the metal thing you use when woodworking.

spanish migas

hi pardon for my english becasue is too bad,spanish migas,well really these migas are toledanas.
you need bread baguette francaise or italian from yesterday
power peeper
the bread you make migas,migas are cuts of bread of 1/2 inch,and you wet it,wet only.
in a pan you join some oil with low fire,you join the garlic becasue the oil must taste to garlic,and after fry also some chorizo,too low because you need tha the oil has color red,tehn you join some power peeper,it gaves more color red to the oil,after you join the migas wet,how oil is low you don't feel the water in the oil,and move some times,and served hot.
you know than they are good make,when you note than they are wet inn,if the bread is dry are bad make.
it is a war dish,it is about the bad epoques,and gives problems of fat.Also is a dish ahrd to left,now there are a lot of people than love them,but....my father love the spanish migas.

And all that is if it's spanish or portugese chorizo. If it's Mexican chorizo (raw) I recomend crumbling it up in a pan and using it as the base for some great refried beans.

For spanish chorizo I like buying a rolled up pie crust, frying chorizo rounds, dropping them into circiles cut out of the crust with some cheese and baking them for smokey, cheesey apetizers at a dinner party.
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

What Lugaru said. There are two kinds--one is Mexican and crumbly--needs to be cooked. The other is Spanish and is a sausage that you can cut in chunks and use in different ways. VERY different things.

Try subbing out half the ground beef with chorizo in a batch of chili.

Instead of making spaghetti bolognese with the tradtional meatballs, chop up chorizo sausages and use instead

Hope I'm not too late to the Chorizo party. I would use the chorizo in place of any recipe calling for sausage. A few ideas:

Sausage sub - Chorizo, peppers, onions & cheese

Mexican pizza - Chorizo, red & green peppers, roasted garlic, cilantro & cheeeese

Lasagna - Chorizo, spinach, ricotta, roasted red peppers & jack cheese

Stuffed Peppers w a side of Spanish rice

And my fave - Paella

Thank you all for the excellent suggestions. I will surely use some of them.

What a great site, help from all whenever you need it.
