  2. This looks great. I made risotto for the first time a few weeks back, for some reason I was worried about making, but it was a success.

    I like the sound of the combination of Chorizo and Cheddar,

  4. It looks really good - I love chorizo but I don't think I've used it in a risotto yet.
    It looks really quick and easy to make after a hard day in the garden too so I'm bookmarking it for such an occasion!

  5. I love using chorizo in a risotto but have never added cheddar before. In fact, in my kitchen almost everything gets made with a bit of chorizo at some point.
