As the country’s most popular sausage, Chouriço is served in myriad ways: sliced rounds in savory stews; flame-grilled in backyard BBQ; or fried with eggs at breakfast.
How do you eat Portuguese chourico?
Like morcela, you can eat it with bread, but it’s also common to mix it with scrambled eggs (look for ovos mexidos com farinheira). It has an orange-ish color and tastes sweeter than chouriço. Once cooked, farinheira turns into a delicious soft paste, perfect to spread on bread.
Is there a difference between chorizo and chourico?

Is Portuguese chourico cooked?
Portuguese chourico is a smoked sausage, so it is fully cooked and ready to eat.
Is linguica spicier than chorizo?
Linguiça is very similar to chouriço. It’s a pork sausage that gets its flavor from lots of garlic and a smoke curing. It has paprika like Spanish chorizo, but tends to have a milder flavor.
How long does Portuguese sausage last in fridge?
All sausages- except dry sausage – are perishable and therefore must be kept refrigerated or frozen. Uncooked fresh sausage can be stored in the refrigerator one to two days; after cooking, keep for three to four days refrigerated (40 °F or less).
