We have this amazing local sausage maker here in Seattle called Uli’s Famous Sausage at Pike Place Market. When I came across this simple but lovely recipe this week, I knew getting a great chorizo would be the key to making this dish perfect. While I was out and about, my darling husband whipped this up with the chosen Uli’s Chorizo Picante. It turned out sooo spicy and so good. I’m looking forward utilizing this again and again with our favorite green, kale.
Chorizo with Kale
2 chorizo, sliced
1-2 cloves garlic, peeled & sliced
1 large bunch kale, finely sliced crosswise
handful roasted almonds (optional)
Heat a frying pan on a medium high heat. Add a little oil and the chorizo. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until well browned on the first side. Turn and cook for a few seconds on the other side. Remove from the pan to a clean plate. Add garlic and kale to the chorizo oil in the pan and stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until kale is wilted and tender. Return chorizo to the pan to warm up. Taste and season with salt, pepper and a small squeeze of lemon.
