This all came about because my Sister Introduced me to a locally made Chorizo from a mercado (market) in the barrio across the river. I started useing it in every recipe I could think of. Then I started inventing recipes I could use this wonderful chorizo in. This is my first "new" recipe. It turned out pretty good, all false modesty aside. The times are, of course, a guess.
