    Dib's's Note:

    This recipe is posted by request. Original recipe is by Charles G. Reavis. There are a few types of Spanish Chorizo. Sweet Spanish Chorizo calls for paprika, while the Spicy Spanish Chorizo calls for Cayenne pepper. This Version calls for Cayenne Pepper. If you prefer the sweet simply switch out paprika for the cayenne. You should also note that Authentic Spanish Chorizo recipes vary from Village to Village-adjust seasonings to personal taste.

      Everything works well together and the flavor is great. I made mine sweet with smoked paprika, which is described as the alternate to the cayenne pepper in Dib's notes.

      I total agree with chef Shadow the smoked paprika is missing. The rest sounds close I will make it and see how close it is. At least to my taste, I have been looking for a while. I do not agree with the fennel but will try it.
