Love this recipe. So simple but so delicious. It was less expensive than I feared - I halved the recipe and served it as part of a small selection of tapas for a starter. I just bought 1 pack of small chorizos (150g) and then halved the other ingredients and it turned out well.

Thanks for your question. Although you could make this the day before and reheat it in the microwave, it doesn't take long and will be better made fresh.

Thank you for your question. Yes, you can reheat this. Make sure it is cooled and refrigerated within 90 mins and then reheated until piping hot throughout.

Made this recipe for a first time event I was attending. Be careful what kind of red wine you use. I made it with merlot, which turned it an ugly purplish brown color. BUT HAPPILY, everyone loved it anyway!!!! They ate it all up and gave me several compliments. In may have looked ugly, but it tasted great! It probably would have looked more attractive if I had used a pinot noir or a syrah. All in all, it was a success!!
