Spanish Chorizo and Leek Stuffed Pea Pods – a delicious appetizer that is packed with flavor and perfect for a crowd!


  • 6 fresh, large pea pods – carefully take paring knife and split open each pea
  • 1 leek – 1 Tablespoon minced; 6 1/4 inch slices for serving
  • 2 Tablespoons minced Spanish Chorizo
  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon butter
  • pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Melt butter and add olive oil to small skillet on medium heat.
  2. Add minced leeks and move around skillet for about 2-3 minutes or until start to become translucent;
  3. Add chorizo and salt and pepper;
  4. Continue cooking moving around skillet for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  5. Take pea pods one at a time and a small spoon (I used a baby spoon) to carefully spoon as much of the mixture as you can into each pea pod.
  6. Plate slices of leek on a plate and lean full pea pods up against to keep from falling.
  7. Serve as appetizer, salad course, or small plate.
