We have been looking for chorizo recipes. We fell in love with this sausage, and there just are not many recipes for it. My kids ate this on their hot dogs, and, before I knew, it the entire pot was gone.

  • Stir ground beef and chorizo with the vegetable mixture, breaking meat into increasingly smaller chunks as you cook and stir until the meat is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes with green chile peppers into the beef mixture, respectively; season with chili seasoning mix. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook chili at a simmer until thickened, about 1 hour and 45 minutes.

This is a hearty soup with just enough kick. I had chorizo in the freezer so thought this would be a good way to use it up. Only difference for me is I had a can of kidney beans so I threw it in. Will make again for sure. Read More

Good flavor but I accidentally cut the tomato sauce in half and I'm glad I did. Read More

I bought all of the ingredients to make as written with one exception and that is beans. Beans are a must for me and chili. I started preparing as is but ended up leaving one of the 28oz. cans of tomato sauce out and replacing them with 2 small cans of chili beans and one small can of pinto beans. At that point there was plenty of tomato product going on and I ended up leaving out the tomato paste as well. Not sure if it was the Rotel or what but this had a very vinegar-y flavor going on in the end. I loved that aspect and the reason is because I grew up in Kansas City and both sides of my family added a splash of vinegar to their bowls so this was right up my alley. Mom always said it helped neutralize the grease but who knows? All I know is that I got used to having that vinegar splash and have a hard time eating chili without it. The chorizo did make this pretty oily but it added nice flavor too. Read More
