    EmilyStrikesAgain's Note:

    This is a Rachael Ray 30 Minute Meals recipe that has been a staple of mine for a year or so. Includes a recipe for piquillo gazpacho to serve on the side. (Note: I have always used soft chorizo in place of the cured and "grilled" it on a stovetop grill pan and it turns out fine, though be sure to really compact it so they don't fall off)

      Loved this dish, great for a hot summer day. I used Mexican Chorizo for the chorizo. Definitely will make many times again this summer.

      Made this for Pac Spriing '08. I liked it, but felt the gazpacho needed a little something else (other than hot sauce, which I thought detracted from the Chorizo taste in the skewers), so I added celery salt. That's the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars. A very good recipe Emily Strikes Again! Thanks.
