Pimiento choricero contains a kind of paprika powder in chorizo, which gives the sausage its red color and flavor. A few centuries ago, paprika was not yet available here in Europe. Only after the explorers took the plant to Europe was it added to the sausage.

The birthplace of the chorizo ​​is in the Spanish region of Extremadura. This province is located in the southwest and borders Portugal. Extremadura is one of the least touristic and most authentic regions of Spain, with a rich history and culture. It is the region where many conquistadors, such as Hernán Cortés and Francisco Pizarro, came from. They brought the chorizo ​​to the New World, where it became a popular ingredient in Latin American cuisine.
