What is Chorizo?

This typical Spanish sausage is often confused with other varieties of “chorizo” from Latin America. In fact each recipe is unique and once you try Spanish style chorizos you will never forget those bold flavors. Pork meat mixed with naturally smoked De la Vera paprika (a must), garlic powder and other special ingredients make chorizo a very desirable feast. We brought this family recipe from Northern Spain in the early seventies, and ever since then we take pride in preparing every batch of our Despaña chorizo to delight American food lovers.

For many years we have been servicing the palates of discerning chefs in the food service industry and today we make our specialty meats available to home cooks, striving to build a bridge between two cultures. Chorizo is very versatile, you can cook it in stews, rice or pasta; or give a twist to an informal meal by combining our chorizo with vegetables or fish. Prepare unique ‘tapas’ with our chorizo and let your imagination guide you. Whichever way you choose it will be a tasty success.
