I can't rate as highly as Sydney below. I am not sure if the cook time is too long but it definitely yielded a very browned pudding. I wouldn't say "burned" but the brown-ness added a dull flavor. And overall, the flavor was lacking. I really could not taste the chorizo as a stand out flavor and I did not skimp on the sausage quality. <br/>I brought it to the host as a Thanksgiving side and it was unimpressive so I was very disappointed. Live and Learn. Was not worth six eggs and quality sausage, or time invested.
Made this when we had some 'south of the border' friends over, friends who are always chiding me for need for using MILD chilies! Nevertheless, their appetite belied their remarks, & the 4 of us devoured this dish at one sitting (& here I was gonna gift them some to take home)! Anyway, your dish was a big hit & much appreciated! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag]
