Pork lovers know there is a lot of variety in the sausage world. That certainly holds for chorizo. There are distinctive chorizos from Mexico, Central America and Spain. Chorizos can be mild or spicy, crumbly or hard.
This rice with chorizo dish--think of it as a simple paella--calls for Spanish chorizo, an aged sausage which is firmer than Mexican chorizo and less spicy. It’s available at Spanish and some Latino markets. If you can’t find it, substitute Portuguese linguica sausage, often available in supermarkets.
