Chorizo is not only one of Despaña’s best-selling products, but it's our very own brand made here in New York City, and how we got our start! From our humble beginnings in 1971, Despaña started as a chorizo-meat manufacturing facility. Our cooking chorizo is perfect for any recipe calling for sausage. 

This chorizo is unlike any other on the market. Using imported Pimentón de la Vera spice right from Spain, mixed with pork sourced here in the USA, Despaña Brand Traditional Chorizo is a beautiful medley of cultures. It's slightly spicy with deliciously smoky hints.
