Cuban spicy Chorico

Cuban spicy Chorico

This has become one of my all time favorite recipes that takes about 10 minutes to prepare. I made it one day for a few mates who came over to watch the rugby and now I can’t seem to get rid of them. I first had it at a Cuban restaurant in Cape town and just could not get enough of it so had to get a recipe going and here it is!

It can be spicy or mild but I would recommend as spicy as you can handle.

Warning: You will not be welcomed by lovers who have not been eating this with you.

What you need

A couple of Chorizo, say 6 inches of chorizo per person sliced into fairly chunky slices, about 1/2 cm each.

Put a pot on the stove, add 1 tin of chopped tomatoes for every 4/5 people(with or without onion – depends how you feel) . Heat on a medium heat for a few min. Add a few cloves of crushed garlic, whole dried chilli’s to your taste and a teaspoon of paprika per tin tomatoes (smoked paprika if you have) and gently simmer it for a few minutes. Toss on the sliced chorizo and let it all simmer while you cut up a few french loaves or pita or whatever you prefer.

Spoon the mixture into a bowl and if you like it fancy like I do, chop up a few spring onions and sprinkle on top and drink up those compliments.

If you really want to make it a special experience for your friends, make this biltong recipe and the tortilla recipe.
