Chorizo Extra Hot 250/G
Why are they called Chorizo Extra Hot?
The red color of Spanish chorizo is due to the heavy amounts of paprika in the spice mix. Depending on the type of paprika used, Spanish chorizo can be either spicy or sweet. The paprika used in Spanish chorizo is almost always smoked, which gives the sausage a deep, smoky flavor.
Spanish chorizo is made from coarsely chopped pork and pork fat, seasoned with garlic, pimentón – smoked paprika – and salt. … A rule of thumb is that long, thin chorizos are sweet, and short chorizos are spicy, although this is not always the case.
