    I have the same question as Louise. What is air dried chorizo? I assume this is Mexican chorizo too, and not Spanish chorizo. Thanks.

    Seems a bit of a faff! Don’t know how thick the courgettes are but to slice them lengthwise in half inch slices would mean just slicing them in half! Surely they’d be less than half an inch thick?

    Couldn’t this be made into a bake?

    In UK, chorizo is similar to pepperoni but different flavour and can be thinly sliced or slice thicker and make into cubes. Adds extra flavour to chicken.

    Any chorizo will do from any country as long as it's good quality. We have our own English chorizo with locally sourced meat being used by my local butcher. I never buy supermarket meat or fish.

    A bit load of a faff as someone else said! I didn't have courgettes, as we call them in England, so I weighed out the required weight of marrow -
    that was picked this morning from my neighbour's allotment ansbleft at my door so mean excuse to.use half of it. Same thing just bigger and so much cheaper - in my case home grown and free! So I did everything except I chopped the courgettes instead of fiddling with roll-ups and I put them into the mixture. I used 40g best back bacon fried with the mushrooms as I had that and wasn't going out in the rain to buy 100g of processed chorizo to get 40g. I couldn't face anymore fat so didn't use the mayonnaise on my green salad leaves. I have a vegetarian friends so would just miss out the meat. Delicious!
