An embutido (Spanish: [embuˈtiðo], Brazilian Portuguese: [ẽbuˈtʃidu]), enchido (European Portuguese: [ẽˈʃiðu]) or embotits (Catalan: [əmbuˈtits]) is a generic term for sausages found in Spain, Portugal, the Philippines, and Central and South America.

It generally contains hashed meat, generally pork, seasoned with aromatic herbs or spices (black pepper, red pepper, paprika, garlic, rosemary, thyme, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, or others) that is served wrapped in the skin of the pig's intestines. Mass-produced sausages of these types are often wrapped in a type of artificial, sometimes edible, skin.

There are several types of embutidos/enchidos:
