Orce "Fire" horizo adds a real fiery twist to your tapas partly. Made locally in the same way as our other hand made chorizo the "fire" version is extremely hot! For this tapa we have also added some green chilli and a little extra pepper to create something for those who like their tapas hot. The use of liver in this recipe adds a nice texture but you can use any meat such as pork, ham or even fruit.
