Spanish Chorizo is a firm pork sausage that is seasoned with Spanish Pimenton (a smoked paprika). Chorizo Autentico Mild by Palacio’s is a great quality chorizo that we love. However, only a few grocery stores carry Palacio’s. It is available to purchase online though. Boar’s Head Uncured Chorizo is another great option that is available in some grocery stores.
