Our Native Spanish tapas tour guides gather information in one of our many Madrid tapas tour through our customers and we have reached the conclusion that the best Spanish tapa in Madrid is undoubtedly CHORIZO, yes, Spanish zesty pork-sausage!
It is a common tapa in Madrid bars, it can be served to accompany a single drink (as the picture above) or it can be ordered as a portion to share among several people:
Native Spanish tapas offers our clients a favorite chorizo tapa called “chorizo a la sidra“, or fried chorizo sauteed with cider or white wine.
Now to the nitty-gritty, the elaboration of Spanish chorizo, how it is made. Just as most Spanish food, it is a simple recipe. Spanish chorizo is like many other pork-sausages elaborated around the world, but what makes this Spanish sausage so special is that it is cured very much like Spanish ham is. Another important aspect of the elaboration of Spanish chorizo is the large amounts of paprika spice mixed in. Surprisingly enough, it seems that Spain is the only country that puts in a large amount of paprika in it’s pork-sausage, hence the creation of Spanish chorizo!
