According to Tastewise’s research, Pork Chorizos’ appearance on menus is increasing by over 30% a year and appears an average of 6 times on a menu, it’s no surprise!


Popular in Spanish and Mexican cuisine but not limited to, you can add chorizo to pizzas, and stews. Also, serve as part of a breakfast or use the oil from the Chorizo to enhance the flavour of a meal. There are no limitations in its application.



3 Fat Pigs Chorizo is a traditionally cured sausage that is popular for its oiliness, smokiness, and spiciness. We know at this point you don’t need convincing but here are just a few more reasons to try our Pork Chorizo:


  1. Traditionally smoked & cured: 3 Fat Pigs Pork Chorizo is treated the way it should be, with care, and cured long and slow. This process not only preserves the sausage but matures the smoky flavours and prevents the unwanted ‘sour’ flavours that develop from fast, commercialized fermentation.
  2. Authentically Spanish: Our Chorizo is crafted by a family business in Catalonia Spain, the birthplace of Chorizo. They have perfected the technique across generations – you can’t get more authentic Chorizo than 3 Fat Pigs!.
  3. Versatile: 3 Fat Pigs Pork Chorizo is extremely versatile as it can be used in a variety of dishes and cuisines. The semi-cured nature of 3 Fat Pigs Pork Chorizo allows the pigmented and flavourful natural oil of the chorizo to seep out. Render this paprika-and-garlic-rich oil and it can be used as a flavourful base for paella, pasta, and more!
