    Made this tonight it came out so good. I used linguica instead of chorizo. Isn’t chorizo spanish though? I’ve never seen portuguese chorizo here in the US. All I’ve seen is either linguica or chourico. Anyway my Mom told me that the rice part tasted just like the rice my Grandmother used to make! So thank you for that! I never really got to have her food and wasn’t exposed to a lot of Portuguese food even though my Father is portuguese and his family emigrated from Portugal.

      Thanks a lot, We are glad to know that our food can bring you memories and tastes from your grandmother’s country.
      We are going to change chorizo for Portuguese chouriço. We did that because we thought that was easier to people understanding that way. Thank you for that too.

      Até breve e bons cozinhados” 🙂
