This chorizo from Embutidos Alejandro is a semi-cured sausage made with carefully selected meats, and seasoned with pimenton de la Vera (smoked paprika), salt, and a touch of spices. It’s then slowly matured in cellars for a number of days. It’s 100% natural, gluten-free, and lactose-free.
Made in Rioja, home to the best Spanish wines, the Alejandro Chorizo Classic Natural is smoky, intense, and pronounced in flavor. It has a great juiciness thanks to the balance of lean and fatty meat cuts, and a wonderful unique but subtle heat.
The Alejandro Chorizo Classic Natural is ready to eat. Simply slice them, and serve them as tapas. Pair with a goat cheese, and accompany with beer or any Spanish red wine.
You can also slice it up for sandwiches, or mix it into your eggs. But the best way to eat it, still, is on its own.
Embutidos Alejandro is a small, family-owned Spanish company founded in 1987, although the family has been making chorizo since the 1960s. It’s located in the La Rioja region, where you will find the best Spanish wines and chorizo. Their pigs are raised free range and fed an all-natural diet, and they adhere to strict processes in selection of breeds. They’ve been producing artisan chorizos, a traditional and iconic Spanish sausage, with traditional recipes and methods passed down through generations.
Embutidos Alejandro prides itself in not only their quality chorizos, but in the wide variety they offer, from Magno and Troncal, which are great for tapas, to Barbacoa, which is ideal for cooking, and many more. They also pride themselves in keeping their chorizos 100% natural, gluten-free, and lactose-free.
This type of sausage may be stored for up to 6 weeks (if whole) in your pantry and indefinitely in the refrigerator (whole or in vacuum-packed slices). After opening, they should be used within 3 weeks.
