Chorizo is an ingredient loved by many, and has a huge following. We therefore wanted to dedicate a blog especially to it! For those of you who don’t know, ‘chorizo’ is the name of a spicy Mexican pork sausage. The Spanish version is most often spiced with paprika and garlic, whereas Mexican chorizo is spiced with chilli peppers. Here we will share with you all of our favourite Chorizo Recipes that have been tried, tested and loved by everyone here at Gran Luchito. They all got a big thumbs up!
We hope you enjoy these recipes, and please let us know how you get on in the kitchen. Don’t forget to tag us #granluchito and leave your feedback under the recipes. We love to hear from you!

The flavours in this Squid and Chorizo Seafood Bake are sublime. It tasted amazing when we tried it in our test kitchen. As well as our Chipotle Paste, the dish gets most of its flavour from the chorizo, so buy the best you can find. Squid can be pan-fried, or in this case slowly baked in the oven in all of the wonderful juices. All else that is needed is some flatbreads, nice crusty bread or polenta to serve with it.
