Hm, there are different kinds ... we South Floridians (Cuban) like Spanish-style dry chorizo, but Mexican aficianados like a whole different wet, must-be-refrigerated kind. It's more hamburger-y.

Guessing you need Spanish-style. Luckily, no refrigeration needed / can be mailed.

Then there is Portuguese chorizo. I believe there are two different types of Spainish chorizo one is similar to the Portuguese variety.

Best chorizo is from el Bierzo(León), anyway you don't need any sausage to coock (ops spelling) paella. I beg you, please don't do it :001_rolle
 

Living in the place where tradicional paella is made, is sounds (and surely tastes) awkward to me. But you're free to experiment, paella is made in many ways even here.

As an anecdote, this past year a well-known rice producer company from Valencia (DACSA), two days before our april fool's, that we call "día de los santos inocentes", made a joke in twitter, advertising a new product, CHORIZO especial para paella ( Arroz Dacsa on Twitter )

There are always purists. They don’t always realize that when immigrants come to America, they sometimes alter their recipes to fit what is available and acceptable to the American market. For example- pizza in this country barely resembles Italian pizza.

You're right, I had a knee-jerk reaction. Even here in the Comunidad Valenciana, the way of making paella varies from province to province, from town to town, even from house to house. We have also different kinds of paella for every season depending on the availability of ingredients. There're who prefers paella with seafood, others with meat, mixed seafood & meat, or only vegan.

Nah, it wasn’t knee jerk. I know where you’re coming from. When you come from a place known for a dish, you kind of hate to see it messed with. Natural reaction.
