A question about a recipe: Paprika-Scented Manchego Chorizo Puffs

Ddb48f80 2549 4d18 a445 dca17be3bdd8  zeppole

I have a question about the ingredient "chorizo, finely diced" on the recipe "Paprika-Scented Manchego Chorizo Puffs" from Half-Buzzed Hostess. Does this call for cooked or smoked chorizo? Also, should it be in sausage form?

I think you want Spanish chorizo, which is a dry cured sausage, not Mexican chorizo which is totally different. The Spanish chorizo can be finely diced. The Mexico stuff is not dry cured, more like a fresh sausage which cooks down to little bits. It's not the same thing, don't be tempted to substitute it for Spanish chorizo. If you can't find the Spanish stuff, try substituting with Linguiça which is a Portuguese smoke cured sausage flavored with garlic and paprika.
