Amuse-Biatch Questions Ilan Hall's Bloodless Sausage

Among the many, many things that have been puzzling us since last week, one small question continues to bedevil us.

During last week's "Finale - Part 1" (insert clarion call), the Bravo graphics told us that Ilan Hall's dish contained "morcilla," a Spanish blood sausage. However, Ilan himself told the judges that he had used "chorizo," which he had made at home (insert onanism joke), but which does not contain blood. So which is it? Was Ilan's sausage gorged with blood, or was it not? Inquiring minds want to know.

I read somewhere that morcilla is a type of chorizo made with blood.

Morcilla is not chorizo with blood. It is actually just straight up blood sausage with rice in it.

actually Jesse, you are wrong, not all morcilla has rice in it, there are many variations.
