2 dry cured Portuguese style chorizo sausages, sliced
1/4 cup olive oil

In a large pan add the chorizo over medium heat and fry until starting to brown. Pour in the olive oil and lower heat to medium low, then add in the shallots and garlic. Sauté with the chorizo until onion softens and garlic starts to brown. Add the tomatoes, and continue to sauté until tomatoes start to blister and open, stirring often.
