Hugh talks us through his Tupperware chorizo recipe in River Cottage Every Day
Hugh: "I find the mild heat and smoky flavour of chorizo goes with so many things, from eggs to vegetables, fish and shellfish. Making and maturing your own 'real' chorizo is fun but undeniably a commitment, so here's the easy version - very popular in Mexico and also here in East Devon."
Makes about 750g
1. Put all the ingredients except the oil into a bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands, squishing the mix through your fingers to distribute the seasonings evenly.
2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, break off a small piece of the mixture, shape into a tiny patty and fry for a few minutes on each side, until cooked through. Taste to check the seasoning, remembering that the flavours will develop further as the mixture matures. If you're a heat fiend, you can add more cayenne and black pepper.
3. Cover the mixture and store in the fridge for at least 24 hours before using; this will allow the flavours time to develop. It will keep for about 2 weeks.
