Hey Charlie,

Portuguese sausage otherwise known as Chirico is awesome! There are several different spice combinations that people mix in to the sausage from mild to hot, but the basics are always the same. You can do a million different things with it...

-Bake a couple with potatoes in a wine and tomato sauce.
-Cut into small "chip" size pieces, and then fry them up on a frying pan with a little olive oil. You then make up some French fries and a couple of sunny side up eggs and you have a feast on your hands!
-I like to add a link to soup. You cut some sliced holes in the link and it releases flavor into the soup which is fantastic.
-The classic and most popular way to make up Chirico is to make up "sloppy joe" style with peppers and onions. Take 3-4 links and grind them up or chop fine. Add some tomato sauce and other spices to your liking and then chop up fine some green peppers and mix all together. You can also chop up an onion. You can make it up quick in a pan or you can throw it all in a slow cooker. Just take the mix and place it in a bun and you're good to go.

Let me know what you how you make out...
