I made this snack for some friends a few days ago and they really loved it, so I decided to share my recipe here on HubPages. Apart from easy, this snack is ready in no time.

Therefore, it is an excellent snack to make when you've got friends over for a drink. I would personally recommend having serving it accompanied by a cold glass of white wine; it is an absolutely fantastic combination.

If you’re a chili lover, I am sure that you would definitely love it.


Enjoy!

      Chris, Your recipe is creative and imparts tantalizing flavors across cyberspace. Chorizo has such a distinctive texture and is also such a cooperative flavor enhancer as well that I never cease to be amazed by its versatility and also by the flavor-filled simplicity of recipes in which it participates. Mmm: white wine vinegar, lemon, olive oil, cayenne pepper!

      Thank you for sharing this great, easy snack.

      Appreciatively, Stessily

      Hi Charron,

      I really enjoy having a spicy snack with a cold drink, and pilsner sounds really good too :)

      Thank you so much for your comments and support,

      Have a lovely day,

      Well how delicious is this. Nothing like a spicy bite with a cold something-something. I am thinking pilsner, but wine sounds good, too! I hitch-hiked all over this post, and generally do...

      To come by is to star the cook. Momma taught me well..;)
