En español: Chorizo Al Vino Tinto

This sauteed chorizo with red wine is an authentic recipe for this tapas dish.

Let’s face it, chorizo sausage with all that smoked paprika and garlic is one of the best cooking ingredients ever invented and I love it.

Chorizo sausage, Spains gift to cooking

In everyday cooking, I usually thinly slice or dice the chorizo. But for this tapa, thicker slices cooked in this red wine reduction create a meaty treat in a rich smoky syrup. Absolutely delicious.
