There are many variations of chorizo. I believe most of what is made in the Americas is usually fresh, while Spanish and Portuguese versions tend to be dried.

I'll bet this would work well with ripe plantains.

We use plantains quite a bit. I was thinking the ripe, sweet ones that we use for maduros would be great in your recipe.

There are two kinds of chorizo, the Spanish variety, which is much like a salami, but with different seasonings. It is a cured sausage that can be used with rice, tortillas, added to soups, served up on crackers, or toast points, is great with cheese, etc.

Mexican Chorizo is a highly spiced meat mixture that is loosely packed into a sausage casing. Typically, the sausage filling is squeezed out of the casing and used as a seasoning for egg dishes, or put together with diced potatoes for hash-browns with chorizo, or added to chili, etc. It's a mixture of spices, ground pork, vinegar, and other things, and is wonderful. Caution, the stuff you find in the local grocery stores may have animal parts that are questionable. So read the label.
