I have a new papak (meal without rice) favorite. Usually when my family and I drink together, we like to make papak on whatever we can find at home: cheese, jalapeno, cold cuts, nuts, chips, kinilaw, or some dip with crackers. It’s usually how we bond after a long day of work or when someone’s in need of a drink. So when I tried the Spicy Ilonggo Chorizo by Bite& Co., I was so excited to take it home because I knew my family would enjoy it as much as I did.
This chorizo recipe used to be one of those items you’d have at a friend’s house, enjoy it so much, but can’t have it anywhere else because it’s your friend’s lola’s secret family recipe that can’t be bought. Luckily it’s now available to the world, and you can take it home and have as much Chorizo as you want!
Tricia Espino, who makes and runs Bite & Co. from her home, now shares with everyone a long time family Chorizo recipe that originated from her Wawa (lola). It was a family merienda staple that their grandmother used to serve them with toasted pan de sal and quesong puti.
