Maddy do you still cook the chorizo if you have chorizo rather than chorizo sausage?

Yes, I would still cook it.
We also buy freshly smoked kabana, and cooking it really brings out the flavour I think  ;)

We had this for dinner tonight and it was delicious.  My DH loved it, thanks Maddy.
Used a fairly hot spicy chorizo, so I cut back a little on the smoked paprika.

That's great Katie  :)
The heat factor differs so much, doesn't it.
Like the butchers own kabana we buy....it can make your tongue melt sometimes....or maybe he just had too many beers before making those ones :P

Made this the other day (3rd day of Thermomix ownership!) and found the recipe really simple to follow. My bf doesn't like mushrooms so I subsituted zucchini and it still came out really nice.  He was very complimentary about it.   We reheated the remainder the next day using the varoma, which worked very well and kept the risotto really moist.

I made this tonight and although it was pretty tasty it is probably not my favourite risotto recipe (I am in love with Alyce's risotto from QFITT at the moment).  I did make a few adjustments to cater to what was in the fridge:
- didn't have quite enough chorizo so supplemented it with some bacon
- added some wine in with the stock
- didn't have any mushrooms so left that bit out
- added parmesan cheese

It certainly makes quite a bit so I'll be eating it for a few meals over the next few days.  Thanks for the recipe Maddy.

Have been meaning to thank Maddy for this recipe for some time.  It is very flavoursome and works well with many types of sausages. I'm using a lovely Italian sausage that my local butcher makes at the moment.  My daughter hates risotto but enjoys this one :) Looking forward to dinner tonight!!!

Maddy, I absolutely loved this recipe.

I had a chorizo and pumpkin risotto when out for dinner recently and it was nice but missing something so I wanted to try and make my own.

I just used your recipe but maybe should have added the pumpkin with the mushrooms instead of at the start as they dissolved but nonetheless, this was beautiful.  I halved the recipe and only had one chorizo which I diced and left chunky.  Even DH loved it and he's not a huge risotto fan.

Half the recipe was plenty for the two of us and he recipe was very well written and easy to follow.  Thanks so much.  I'm off to find some more 'Maddy' recipes 😜
