Chorizo is not just generic sausage. It is a specific kind of spicy sausage. Chorizo, Longaniza, Morcillam, Salamin are all specific types of Argentinian sausages, but they are not synonyms for each other. A generic sausage is just called "salchica".

Edit: I have no idea why the course is using Chorizo as a generic term for sausage. I didn't see that until just now. Could be a regional usage. But, yeah I'm confused.

Embutido is a type of cured dried sausage linked to Spain and Portugal. The generic word for sausage is just "salchicha". Unless there is a regional usage for Embutido that has strayed from a more specific term to a more generic, overarching term. It is possible. But, I'm unfamiliar with it.
