  1. Dissolve the yeast in 4 tablespoons of warm water. Add about 1/2 tablespoon of flour and mix well. Set aside.
  2. In a big bowl, mix the flour, olive oil, salt, and the yeast mixture. Add some more warm water a bit at a time until you have a smooth dough that doesn’t stick to your hands. Let rise for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide into 8 portions. Using a rolling pin roll out the dough pieces into rectangles.
  4. Layer the sliced chouriço on the dough, roll the dough up, and pinch the seams to close.
  5. With a knife make 4 horizontal cuts to the top of the dough pieces.
  6. Set the pieces aside on a greased baking sheet and let them rise for about another 30 minutes.
  7. Dust the tops of the dough pieces with the tablespoon of flour.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees fahrenheit for about 25-30 minutes until the bread is done.
  9. Take out of the oven and let them cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve while hot.
