Palacios Chorizo

In Food on September 28, 2009 at 12:05 pm


One of my sister’s friends sent a care package containing Palacios Auténtico Chorizo Español. Spanish chorizo differs from Mexican chorizo in both flavor and texture. Thanks to pimentón (Spanish smoked paprika), chorizo from Spain has a distinctive smoky flavor, while Mexican chorizo gets its flavor from chile powder. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that Palacios is one of the only chorizos made in Spain that is sold here in the US. (Most “Spanish” chorizos we find here are more likely made in the US with Spanish ingredients.) And they’re fantastic. Their dry-cured sausages are made in the Rioja region of Spain, and they are incredible with a glass of Rioja red.

  1. ooo ooo ooo, please make some spanish tortilla with this and post the recipe!

  2. Palacios is the best Spanish chorizo available in the US now…imported from Spain and as authentic as it gets…I get mine from http://www.rapososgourmet.com best prices and excellent customer service, or also through Amazon Gourmet section with 99% satisfaction!
