This hearty sausage appetizer cooks fast, but has all the wonderful richness of a slow-cooked dish thanks to fragrant spices, canned tomato sauce, and a splash of red wine.
Updated January 5, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 lb cooked chorizo or kielbasa sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • Dash ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine (such as Rioja, Bordeaux or Merlot) or beef broth

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onion; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.
  • 2
    Add garlic; cook and stir 30 to 60 seconds or until fragrant. Add sausage slices; cook 2 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once.
  • 3
    Stir in paprika, coriander and ground red pepper. Add tomato sauce and wine; cook about 5 minutes to reduce slightly, stirring occasionally. Serve warm with cocktail toothpicks.

  • Rioja is a dry red wine from the LaRioja province in Spain. The oak barrels in which it is aged impart a vanilla flavor.
  • Serve in Asian soup spoons with salted almonds and Spanish olives for a Spanish tapas flair.
