  • About

In the home of Cajun and Creole cooking, this sausage is called chaurice, and it is a principal ingredient of jambalaya. You will not be surprised to find that it is very similar to the hot Spanish sausage called chorizo, which is essential to many versions of paella. In fact, the two sausages are virtually interchangeable, so, if you don’t want to make the sausages yourself, use whichever one you can find in your own local shops.
