You can’t beat the taste of artisan chorizo!

Traditionally made from pork meat, chorizo is a hugely popular product in Spain. It’s a staple food found in many Spanish homes and traditional restaurants.

Authentic Spanish chorizo makes a delicious tapa, but can also be used to flavour and add richness to soups or stews.

Read on to find out more about our chorizo and browse our range.

Buy Spanish Chorizo

At Eatapas, we stock many types of chorizo that all have a unique flavour. So, if you’re looking to buy chorizo in the UK, you’re in the right place.

Our 100% iberico bellota chorizo is vacuum-packed to preserve its taste, and pairs perfectly with scrambled eggs. The secret to its delicious flavour? The paprika!

Organic chorizo is one of the most popular Spanish products. So, we offer a melt-in-the-mouth organic chorizo from La Rioja and spicy organic chorizo also. Both taste delicious when used to flavour stews.

Seasoned with paprika and other spices, our artisan iberico bellota chorizo is perfect as a starter when thickly sliced and eaten on its own.

After being seasoned with salt, garlic and oregano, Hacienda Zorita’s 100% iberico bellota chorizo is cured for three months. For the perfect combination, try pairing this chorizo meat with a fruity glass of red wine.

Our sliced iberico bellota chorizo is made using only the best quality meat, which results in a juicy texture.

Finally, our smoked and cured León-style chorizo is the star of a charcuterie board, or the perfect accompaniment to some Spanish cheese.

What is Chorizo Made Of?

So, what are the ingredients in chorizo?


The following are what gives the meat its flavour, along with passion for flavour and attention to the art. Here’s what’s in chorizo:

  • Minced pork
  • Pork fat
  • Garlic
  • Salt 

While the meat itself is essential for flavour, so are the Spanish chorizo spices! They create a range of tantalising tastes, from smoky to sweet. They’re also responsible for the kick the sausage is famous for!

The list chorizo spice ingredients includes:

  • Spanish paprika
  • Red pepper paste
  • Cumin
  • Onion powder
  • Oregano
  • Thyme


Hopefully this provides an answer to the question ‘what is chorizo made from’! If you wanted, you could easily make your own homemade chorizo seasoning!

How to Make Chorizo

So, how is chorizo made?

This spicy Spanish sausage is a true work of art! The process of its production has been crafted and perfected over many years. Time to take a closer look at how chorizo is made:

First, the pig is slaughtered. This used to be a ritual for many Spanish families. After that, the meat is smoked, salted and air-dried for many months.

There you have it! That’s how to make chorizo sausage.

Of course, that’s a much simpler version of the process. It leaves out the passion and love that goes into the process!

What Part of the Pig is Chorizo Made From?

This famous sausage comes from the loin of the pig!

The loin runs along the back of the pig, from the shoulder to the rump.

Is Chorizo Cooked?


When bought, the meat itself isn’t cooked, rather, it is cured. Therefore, many people find themselves asking ‘does chorizo need to be cooked?’

The answer to that is that it can be! But, dry-cured chorizo can also be eaten straight away, if you fancy it!

Best Chorizo Recipes

Cooking with chorizo needn’t be hard! It’s a hugely versatile product that makes the perfect accompaniment to many different dishes. So, it’s no wonder there are so many recipes using chorizo just waiting for you to try.

This Spanish sausage can be used to add a not-so-traditional twist to the traditional paella. While many would argue this changes the dish beyond recognition, it’s great for those who enjoy getting creative in the kitchen.

Also, dry cured Spanish chorizo can liven up an omelette. You’ll find the two contrasting textures complement one another perfectly! Eggs are a great ingredient to bring out the spiciness of the sausage.

Alternatively, try using cured chorizo in a casserole or stew. This is hugely popular choice thanks to the meat’s texture and richness. It certainly livens up your average stew! So, it’s no wonder this Spanish chorizo recipe is so popular.

Or, keep things simple and eat it on its own! In fact, this way of eating it is hugely popular in Spain, as in many restaurants, this is how it is served. For some, great taste doesn’t need any fuss or frills. The meat sausage on its own is enough!

The world of food is always changing! So, we’re sure there are many more homemade Spanish chorizo recipes we have yet to discover.

How to Prepare Chorizo

Chorizo doesn’t need to be cooked! It can be eaten immediately, but we recommend taking it out of the fridge at least an hour before eating.

However, the best way to cook chorizo is to either fry or simmer it. For example, Spanish chorizo tastes delicious when cooked in cider!

What’s the Difference Between Mexican Chorizo and Spanish Chorizo?

It might seem strange that these two types of cured meat have their differences. On the surface, it may seem as though they’re the same!

But, there are some clear variations. For example, Mexican-style chorizo is ground meat, usually made out of pork fat. But, it can be made out of beef too! It is usually sold as fresh chorizo, but dried versions are common also.

Meanwhile, chorizo from Spain is a dried and cured pork sausage! Visually, the two products are incredibly different, which is why it’s difficult to see why the two are confused. The casing of this cured sausage can be eaten, which is why it makes the perfect tapa.
