Dear Barbara: I watch the Food Network, which has brought up a confusing issue. Is chorizo the same in Mexico as it is in Portugal? Emeril Lagasse talks about putting it in soup, but I always thought chorizo was a totally spicy hot sausage from Mexico. — Liz from Lodi

Dear Liz: You are not the only one confused by this! These two sausages are not even close to the same thing, but they are pronounced almost identically. Mexican sausage is “chorizo,” whereas Portuguese sausage is “chourico.” They are both pronounced chor-EE-soh.
