Recipes using chorizo

I have lost a recipe that I had using chorizo. For the life of me, I can't even remember what it was. I have looked through everything.

Anyway, does anyone out there have some good recipes? I have a pkg. in my fridge and can't figure out what I want to do with it.



All suggestions will be appreciated.

While nearly any recipe calling for a spicy sausage will work with chorizo, your best bets will be with Spanish &/or Mexican dishes. Do a websearch - you'll come up with tons of ideas.

A frittata (I never know where to put in the two 't's in that word) with potatoes, the churice, scallions, maybe a little bit of canned tomatoes, and your choice of spices.

Or take the chunked churice, fry (saute) with some sliced boiled taters (Yukon gold, red bliss), some onions, a splash of Worchesterrrrshireshire sauce, and serve with, or mixed with, scrambled eggs.

Sorry, but I have this egg thing going on in my head at the moment.

Cut some potatoes, chop some garlic, slice the chorizo, dice a few peppers....toss it all with olive oil and spanish paprika. Roast it, uncovered in the oven till the potatoes are tender.

Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh pepper before you serve it....preferably with chicken or beef.

OK, got myself over the egg thing.

Beans, the stuff in the can, open.

Add some sugar, brown, white, or honey. Anything sweet will work.

A bit of mustard, Coleman's would be fine, or prepared mustard will do just dandy

This will defintely need a bit of acid so toss in some vinegar, cider, white or wine.

Now add in slices or dices of the sausage, fried (OK, suateed) a bit until they have a crust. Toss them into the mix with the onions you have been caramelizing (did I leave out that step?).

Now add in onions that have been diced to about 1/8 of an inch in size and cooked just a tad, just enough to take the bitterness out of them, but not the crunch, Or you can add sweet onions diced raw.

The apposition of caramelized onions and almost raw ones works well in this dish.

A bit of W-shire sauce (I always have problems spelling that) and a dash of hot sauce will finish it.

And serve. It is tasty. Just make sure you taste as you go along.

What about doing a spicy stir fry? Maybe with some noodles, peppers, hot sauce, a little beef stock and at the end throw in some cooked egg and potatoes.
