In a large skillet, drizzle olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Crumble in the fresh chorizo and cook, stirring often and breaking up with a spoon into small pieces, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chopped spinach and cook just until wilted. Remove from heat, drain any excess fat and water, and allow to cool.
