Oh my goodness you are just going to LOVE this chorizo pasty recipe! Tasty little puff pastry parcels stuffed with a smoky chorizo and Manchego cheese.

I think this might just be our BEST chorizo recipe idea yet! Golden puff pastry stuffed to bursting with tasty chorizo, Manchego cheese, peppers, onions and flavoursome tomato chutney.

Our easy pasty recipe is super simple to make and just tastes SO GOOD! I honestly have no ideas why I’ve never thought of making chorizo pasties before!

To make our tasty little chorizo hand pies… Yes we cheat with the ingredients, I like my recipes to be easy! We use ready rolled sheets of puff pastry and ready diced chorizo pieces.

Chorizo Pasty Ingredients

ingredients for chorizo pasty on a wooden board - puff pastry, yellow peppers, red onion, tomato chutney, chorizo, smoked paprika, dried oregano
  • 2 tbs plain flour – for lightly dusting the surface whilst cutting out the pasty shapes, to stop the pastry sticking.
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 yellow pepper – deseeded and diced
  • 1 small red onion – diced
  • 100g tomato chutney – I just use a jar of store bought chutney
  • 50g chorizo – diced – I buy the chorizo ready diced in little packs
  • 50g Manchego cheese – grated, now Manchego does add to the Spanish vibe of these pasties but if you can’t find it just use Cheddar.
  • 1 egg – beaten
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbs sesame seeds – optional I just like them sprinkled on top of the pastry, you could use poppy seeds or skip them altogether.

How to make our chorizo pasty recipe

Now I know this looks like lots of steps but honestly they’re all super easy, there’s nothing hard or tricky.

  • First up – take your pastry sheets out of the fridge and leave them at room temperature for around 20 minutes before use.
  • Next, preheat the oven to 200C
  • Next add a splash of olive oil to a pan and gently fry the onions and peppers for around 10 minutes to soften them.

  • Unroll your pastry sheets and place them on a lightly floured surface so they don’t stick.
  • Cut out pastry circles – you should be able to cut out 5 circles of around 4 inch diameter and have some pastry scraps left over for decoration. Either use a pastry cutter or a cut around a saucer to make the pasties.
  • Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Next fill the pasties

  • Only add the filling to one half of the pasty and be sure to leave a gap around the edge for sealing the pasties together.
  • Add a dollop of chutney, spread it around the pastry a little, then add the fried onions and peppers, the diced chorizo, the Manchego cheese and a little pinch of the smoked paprika and dried oregano sprinkled over the filling.
  • Brush the edges of the pastry with a little beaten egg and fold over.

  • Seal the pasties together by crimping the edges of the pastry together with a fork. Pressing both sides of the pastry into each other.
  • Put the pastries onto the baking paper lined baking sheets and brush with beaten egg – decorate the top with little cut out stars if you like. Then sprinkle over a pinch of sesame seeds and a little pinch of smoked paprika.
  • Bake the pastries in the oven at 200C for around 30-35 minutes or until golden brown, puffed up and piping hot throughout.
  • Once cooked remove the pastries from the oven and leave to cool slightly on a wire rack.
