Chorizo comes in a variety of forms, shapes, and sizes. Dried smoked chorizo is sold in thin links that can be cut into pepperoni-like slices. Because of its high fat content, this sausage can be cooked and drained before adding to a dish. You can slice and eat dried chorizo without cooking, too -- a tasty addition to any cheese board!
