Are Portuguese and Spanish Chorizo the same thing, and if not, can I substitute one for the other in recipes?

Hi,

I keep seeing recipes that specifically call for "Spanish Chorizo". Since I live in the Boston area, I have no trouble finding Chorico and Linguica in the local supermarket. But, as far as I know, those are the Portuguese style ones. I don't know that I've ever seen "Spanish" style Chorizo in the market.

Are these interchangeable in recipes?
