    "Good chorizo for slicing thin to eat with Manchego cheese and crusty bread, or for use in cooking paella, fabada, or any of your Spanish dishes. I enjoy it often. "

    "a tasty dry chorizo, perfect sliced very thin or dotted into eggs, pasta sauces, salads--only needs a good manchego and wine for companions."

    "Excellent for snacking and works great as a seasoning when browned in olive oil too!"
  • Mike Hitchcock - Jul 31, 2011  
    "As the name implies, this is a superior Chorizo. The fat to lean ratio is perfect. The texture is firm, but not rock hard. It slices beautifully for tapas, quesadillas, or tortas. Nice blend of spices, with the paprika not overwhelming the sausage. "
  • Dave - Jun 14, 2011  
    "I'm surprised by all the good reviews. I was disappointed with this chorizo; it doesn't even come close to chorizo in Spain. Next time I'll spend the extra $3 to try a cantipalo that's made in Spain."
  • Mike - Feb 25, 2011  
    "Excellent flavor, firm but not tough."
  • Victor Anaya-Baez - Dec 24, 2010  
    "Delicioso! This is a simple recipe; yet so delicious I just invited friends over to try it. Perfect balance of spices, salt, meat, fat, and smokiness. Well dried and hard as it should be. The best Cantimpalo I have had in a long time. This I love with red wine, crusty bread, and cured Spanish cheese."
  • Grace Bartolotti,La Ranch - Dec 8, 2010  
    " The closest to any made in Spain, second to none: Fantastic, on a scale of one to ten, a BIG 10! "
  • Marlene - Nov 14, 2010
