Chorizo cantimpalo is famous across Spain for its meaty, smoky flavor. This dry-cured sausage is best sliced thinly and enjoyed wrapped around aged cheese or paired with crusty bread and good Spanish olives.

The original recipe hails from the village of Cantimpalos in the region of Segovia. Over centuries the people of Cantimpalos refined and perfected the recipe, blending fresh rosemary, garlic, smoked pimentón (paprika) and other spices until they created a masterpiece.

Our cantimpalo chorizo is made in this tradition in the city of Burgos. It is one of our favorite foods to bring to parties and get-togethers since it is ready to slice in moments and is a great way to introduce one of Spain's best foods to your friends and family.


Pork, salt, corn dextrin, lactose, paprika, soy protein concentrate, sugar, garlic, natural flavor, spices, sodium ascorbate, potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate, potassium sorbate added to retard mold growth. Stuffed in beef collagen casing.

    "I have tried several of the Chorizos that La Tienda offers, and by far this is the best one. My dad was born and raised in Spain and we get to go back often. This chorizo reminds me of exactly what we eat when we are there. It makes the best bocadillos EVER! "

    "Yep, whatever he said in Spanish, I second it. (It must be good he gave it 5 stars! :) I love this chorizo so much that the last log I bought I saved it for like months because the idea of living without it, cooking without it was like breaking up with a beloved chorizo... I couldn't bear it. Yay for me though and I finally made enough money this year to buy it again. Merry Christmas to me and hubby! This chorizo, for real, can change your life and it really does make ANYTHING taste better. Viva La Tienda!"
