  1. Having never purchased or even eaten chorizo, when Twissis & I were planning our cooking marathon & she chose this recipe, I was unsure. But bowing to her wisdom, I ferreted out the ingredients & turned her loose in my kitchen. What a delightful surprise! I loved it! Thanks for sharing your recipe & thx to MP for making it! (P.S. It's tastebud tingling when served with <a href="/184307">Smoky Chipotle Butter</a> )
  2. DH & I are in Dallas visiting SusieQusie & we made this bread tonite to accompany a crockpot roast & salad dinner. I loved this bread - a dense, moist texture & so full of flavor. We wanted the full flavor of chorizo, so used 6 oz of ground chorizo for a half recipe. We used a 10" cast iron skillet & a full recipe would have required a much larger one. I have been craving chorizo since moving to Iceland & this was a welcome & tasty find. Thx for sharing w/us.
  3. This was a very good bread. I used my cast iron skillet for cooking the chorizo and baking the bread. We thought it could use more chorizo though. Personal taste. I served with beer cheese soup and a salad. A very hearty meal. I will be making it again!
