Chicken and Chorizo on Parmesan Cheese Crisps
Combine all, season to taste and add more mayonnaise, if desired. Chill and top cheese crisps when ready to serve.
For cheese crisps, preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place heaping tablespoonfuls of shredded Parmesan or other hard cheese on pan, leaving room for cheese to spread when it melts. Bake 5-6 min until slightly browned. Cool completely (do not refrigerate) at room temp until crisp. Top with chicken and chorizo mixture. Cheese crisps should be served within a few hours of preparation for best texture.
