Chorizo in Cider

Chorizo cooked in cider (chorizo a la sidra) is one of the easiest tapas to make and the ultimate snack for sharing. Savoury and rich, this delicious dish is perfect to enjoy on a sunny patio with a glass of cold cider to wash it down. Happy cooking.


Yield: serves 2–4 people

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes


1 stick dry-cured chorizo (200g)

2 cups dry apple cider

1 bay leaf

Parsely, chopped for garnish

Bread for dipping


  • Preheat an oven to 375°F.

  • Remove the casing from the chorizo. Discard.

  • Slice the chorizo into about ¼-inch thick slices and add them to a saucepan.

  • Cover the chorizo with the cider. Add the bay leaf and cook on a low simmer for about 45 minutes; until the cider is reduced to a thick and rich syrup.

  • Heat the bread in the oven for about 5 minutes. I used a crusty style roll, baguette or sourdough would also work great for this recipe.

  • Once the chorizo is done, turn off the heat, spoon it into a serving dish, and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

  • Serve your chorizo in cider with warm bread and some toothpicks for easy sharing!
