So good it left all four of us wanting more. Next time we’ll double the recipe. I could have also benefitted from some clarification regarding the chorizo. I purchased some Iberico chorizo from the meat counter, and had them slice it thinly (not super thin, as you would for a charcuterie plate) and the chorizo broke down quite a bit in the pot. I think next time this would be better if the chorizo was sliced a little thicker with a knife at home, giving slightly chunkier pieces that hold up to the heat.AnonymousSeattle, WA01/05/20
