Nice in a bean salad, especially skinned broad beans

Boil some broccoli and cauliflower, slice or dice the chorizo and fry it, toss it in with the veg, blitz or mash it, salt and pepper to taste, add some cream to get your desired consistency.
Baddabing baddaboom.

Simple, yet divine.
You could also fry some bacon with the chorizo for a little extra something something.

I recently made this as a main (with variations) & it was lovely.
I got the recipe from here, but sorry can't give credit to the original poster as I don't know who it was.

Warm Chorizo, potato & Mint salad

1kg small boiling potatoes
1 chorizo sausage, cur into small cubes

Mint Dressing
1 1/2 tabs wine vinegar
2 tspn lemon juice
1 clove garlic mashed
1 tsp mild mustard
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
fresh mint, finely shredded
combine first 5 dressing ingredients then whisk in oil, stir in mint
Cook potatoes until just tender & mix all gently together.
(I cooked the chorizo & then cubed it)
I added more chorizo & garlic, peas & then some baby spinach leaves at the end.
I enjoyed it & would definitely make it again.

I didn't have much bacon the other day when I was making a big pot of minestrone. I did have a couple of spicy chorizos, which I diced and added. It really lifted the soup and I'll definitely use it again.
