Hi all,

Just wondering (might seem like a daft question) but when you buy Chorizo from a supermarket, you usually get it from the fridges....can you eat this as you buy it when you get home, or do you have to cook it first?

Basically, is it ready to eat when you buy it from a fridge?

Thanks!!!

You dont have to cook it, but it tastes better warm..

You can eat it straight away as the above poster suggests.

Its cooked cured meat.

You can bung it in pasta, on pizza, chicken etc.

I LOVE chorizo -- I could eat a whole pack stuffed in a pitta bread with feta cheese and green pesto.....mmmmm

It's fine to eat as is, but really gorgeous if you fry it in a pan with some red wine and olive oil, adding a bit of garlic and chilli to taste. And don't forget the fresh crusty bread to mop up the juice!

beg to differ with the other posters here but chorizo comes in cooked and uncooked forms.

if it comes from a supermarket deli counter it is possible that it could be the uncooked type so beware!

Sorry I am going to be really anal but chorizo is almost always cooked when bought in a supermarket and even if it is not you can actually eat it uncooked, without harm.

Either way you are right - but it is safe to eat it uncooked.

if its slices of chorizo its delicious in a sandwich, with cottage cheese with pineapple and cucumber that my favorite sandwich!

if it's in sausage form, it is cooked so you can eat like that or you can cook with it.

my boyfriend only likes it when its cold "uncooked" , i like it either way

sorry to be just as anal but extracted from the article in the link you yourself provided....

"....The chorizo used for this dish is less cured and cannot be eaten without being cooked......"

i discovered myself the hard way that it is most definately not safe to eat all chorizo uncooked. there are most definately varieties that must be cooked before eating.

I have a pack of 4, uncooked, Chorizo sausages sat in my fridge at this moment in time. They are definately NOT to be eaten without cooking first. I have also eaten the sliced, cooked, version which, in my opiion, is better than the sausages I have. I tried them and don't like them but I do like the cooked sliced version, they go well as a starter in a salad.

You must be well lard, they are about the fattiest oozing bangers I have ever cooked. Be a good additive in a Lard Pie.

I do something similar adding puy lentils and Morcilla (spanish black pudding). Divine.

fresh (uncooked) chorizo cut into slices then baked in an oven with a glass of cider for 15 minutes is absolutely scrummy! Make sure you have some crusty bread to dip in the juices though!

Edited to add, raw chorizo will feel like raw sausages - if its firm then it will be cooked.
