Boxed Chorizo

Fridge Chorizo - Max M Rasmussen
When I cook fried vegetables, make Spanish omelettes, hash from leftovers, etc. I love to add small pieces of chorizo to them. It provides an incredible amount of flavor with small amounts of meat. But chorizo is a very expensive sausage to use in frying. Therefore it is a good candidate for making your own spicy chorizo stuffing, that you can just put into a box in the fridge and use as needed.


  • 500 g (1 lbs) minced ground pork
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika.
  • 1 large garlic clove, or 2 small
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 2-3 tbsp red wine
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (can be omitted)


Mix it all together.

Store in a closed box in the refrigerator.

Take it out when you need to, and make small rough meatballs, and fry them. Can be mixed into almost anything you can think of.
