The Spanish Chorizo

VARIETIES AND FORMATS


Chorizo Sarta (herradura)

CHORIZO

String (Horseshoe)


A single piece that is tied with a string at the end so that it can be hung up; hence it has a characteristic horseshoe shape. With an intense flavour, this chorizo ​​can be eaten raw, without cooking, since its curing is usually perfect.


Chorizo Vela

CHORIZO

Candle


A straight and not very wide piece – between three and four centimeters in diameter – that is usually about 40cm long shaped like a candle, hence its name. It is not usually cooked and is eaten from boards, as tapas, and in sandwiches for example.


Chorizo Loncheado

CHORIZO

Sliced


Easy to buy because the different types of white, duroc, or Iberian pork chorizo ​​are available pre-sliced. It is usually made from a vela, cular, or another chorizo ​​created in a similar way in order to be sliced ​​thicker with a larger diameter. This sliced chorizo has a good amount of curing too.



Chorizo Achorizado

CHORIZO

Chopped


Small in size, well cured, and with an unmatched intense colour, it is perfect to use when cooking; although it is easy to cut, it can also be added whole to stews as it adds a very special texture and touch to what we are cooking.


Chorizo ibérico

CHORIZO

Iberian


It follows the same production method as the white layer pork or duroc chorizos so that it can be marked with the Consortium seal, and the raw materials must come from 100% Iberian pigs. It is sold cured and is presented in slices, shaped like a candle or a horseshoe.


Chorizo Fresco

CHORIZO

Fresh


Chorizo on a string. It is made from a gut and then tied off by dividing it with a string, forming a row of smaller sausages. Generally, this type of chorizo ​​is ideal for grilling and barbecuing because when eaten raw it is very soft and oily.


Traditional and innovative cuisine

OUR RECIPES

Spanish chorizo is an exquisite sausage. Its characteristic flavour makes it an ideal ingredient
for many stews. In addition to the classic sandwich, we can also incorporate it into pasta dishes,
rice-based meals, empanadas, eggs, potatoes, and so on. There are endless options that we
encourage you to discover here.
