    Forget the recipe and tell me how to pronounce one of the ingredients: CHORIZO…. I looked for help as you can plainly see below; but I am still puzzled. How do you say Chorizo?????

    Chorizo (pronounced [tʃo̞ˈɾiθo̞] in Castilian Spanish or pronounced [tʃo̞ˈɾiso̞] in American Spanish ), Chourizo (pronounced [tʃoˈɾiθo̞]) in Galician, Chouriço (pronounced [ʃoˈɾisu] in Portuguese) or Xoriço (pronounced [ʃuˈɾisu] in Catalan) is a term encompassing several types of pork sausage originating from the Iberian Peninsula.

    Phonetic pronunciation only,please! Don’t confuse me further…

    To begin with you will need a flamboyant and sexy Flamenco dress with matching accessories of large earrings, hair combs and flowers. Don’t forget the Castanets!

    Now for stage two… Repeat after me…

    All I really needed was the pronunciation, GM. I was already in my usual Monday morning outfit of Flamenco dress with matching accessories of large earrings, hair combs and flowers.. The castenets are on the piano waiting for Jose to come in and give me my weekly dance instruction and cigar rolling lesson..

    Shall I serve him some him some Chorizo Wrapped Chicken Breasts? Perhaps he would prefer a Chorizo filled Taco. OLE’

    Oh that’s creepy…. I made reference to cigar rolling to someone the other day…they’re in Cuba at the moment…she had no idea what I was talking about… But for real cigar rolling a Flamenco dress is just not right…..

    Instead of a Flamenco dress you could throw on a Mexican serape and put a sombrero on your head and have the chorizo for breakfast with eggs. (Sorry, I don’t like it.)

    Wow! I looked up that picture of the chorizo and got really confused.

    I thought they were the cigars Jose and I were rolling…

    Sounds quite delicious. Pity I am not a great non vegetarian cook, but I definitely intend to give this a shot someday, perhaps when I can visit Europe.

    @Nancy – I was tied up yesterday and the toyboy wouldn’t let me go, so I was unable to get back to you. I hope you fed Jose his lunch. Now go put that sausage away, you have played with it long enough.

    @Magpie – I think this is becoming a creepy crazy place! There is a hill near me…. I wonder if we could roll cigars there 🙄

    @Darlene – I am about to have breakfast as you describe!

    @Baino – It is possible to buy Chorizo that is about 2″ in diamater. Slice the sausage thinly at an angle of 45º rather than straight across and the end result gives a bigger slice. Overlap the slices on the chicken, just like you would do with bacon.

    @Ashok – I am sure you cook some tasty vegetarian meals.
