Chorizo & Specialty Meats
Despaña Brand Chorizos & Specialty Meats
Our specialty meat selections are either manufactured by us at our USDA inspected plant, imported from Spain, or produced by some of our industry colleagues at USDA inspected establishments. Please remember that meat products are heavily regulated by the US Department of Agriculture, therefore many of the items you will find in Spain are not allowed to be imported (and yes, definitely not allowed to be brought in your luggage - not even canned or vacuum sealed). We offer a wide variety of Cold Cuts (Embutidos) such as Salchichón, Butifarra, Fuet, Sobrasada, Chistorra, Lomo Embuchado and Chorizo Palacios.
Since 1971, Despaña Brand Chorizos & Morcilla have been proudly manufactured in the U.S. Our USDA inspected fully cooked chorizos are made with high quality pork meat and imported spices. Pimentón de la Vera is the most important ingredient in our recipe which gives the chorizo its delectable naturally smoky flavor and aroma as well as its bright red color. Our chorizos are available at fine gourmet retailers near you as well as at all of our retail locations. Our varieties are Chorizo Tradicional, Chorizo de Cantimpalo, Mini Chorizo, Chorizo Picante and Chistorra.
Our morcilla (black pudding & onion sausage) is the undiscovered gem among the products we manufacture. It is a huge hit every time we offer it at tastings. Try it fried in a bit of olive oil or on the grill. It tastes great in stews as well (think fabada, you can find our very own recipe here).
