What is the skin on chorizo made from?

Chef's answer
Ok this is a good question and it depends on what chorizo you bought. If it was hand made and is from a small producer it will more than likely be a natural "skin" made from intestine or even stomach from a pig, sheep,cow and occasionally a horse. But traditional producers will use pigs intestine.
