Portuguese Recipes-Chorizo bread








As with the fishcakes, decided to bake this and take it into work. By the end of the morning I was left searching for crumbs to satisfy my craving...None left, no bread, no crumbs, nothing but the faint scent of spicy chourico...

1/4 lb. Chourico
2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter, softened
