Chorizo is such a nice addition to Spanish style dishes, its spicy garlicky flavour gives another dimension to a dish. For me it’s like the bacon in the Spanish cuisine it’s so hard to miss it out especially in stews and casseroles and once you’re hooked you can’t just simply give it up. Look at this recipe for example a simple spicy chicken stew infused with load of garlic and chorizo, it’s so rich a good sour dough bread is needed to absorb all of that nice sauce.
