Chorizo bites are coated in a glistening honey and red wine sauce to be one of the most delicious appetizers you will devour this upcoming holiday season.
Maybe I’m extra excited because of these red wine chorizo bites. Honestly, they’re kind of ridiculously delicious. They’re also insanely easy to make. Read: perfect for a Halloween Party, Thanksgiving, Christmas party, tree decorating, New Year’s Eve party, or for an impromptu holiday get together.
Or you could make them on a random day (today!), pour yourself a glass of wine and call it dinner. Trust me, I would never judge.
STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO MAKING RED WINE AND HONEY GLAZED CHORIZO BITES:
- Slice up some deliciously spicy chorizo and put it in a pan with a splash of olive oil.
- Sear that chorizo until it looks almost charred.
- Pour some honey and red wine into the pan. (I used Cavit Select Red Blend and it was delish)
- Let the ‘sauce’ bubble away until it transforms itself into a sweet and sticky glaze.
If you like to be super OCD organized for your party (like me!) then you can sear the chorizo and pour the honey and wine into the pan. You can set it aside on your stove until peeps arrive then turn the heat on again to quickly reduce the sauce into a glaze.
