Expert Tips

  • Ground chorizo is generally available in 1-lb packages. Cook the whole package, use a quarter for this recipe, then use the rest to fill omelets or stir into pasta or chili.
  • While standard Spanish Manzanilla olives work well in this recipe, if you can find Italian Castelvetrano olives, their beautiful color and flavor can’t be beat!
