Expert Tips

You can use Italian sausage instead of chorizo.

It’s amazing how quickly this year has flown by! Now we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and naturally, I love giving my dishes a special Latin touch. This chorizo and cornbread stuffing is one of my favorites. The combination of flavors is perfect. Make it just a bit more special by serving the stuffing in lightly baked little pumpkins. Simply irresistible!

To present the stuffing in cute little pumpkins, just cut the pumpkins in half and remove the seeds, sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes. Fill with the stuffing.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Cook the chorizo in a pan over medium heat, use a spoon to break apart the sausage as it cooks, and let cook until it begins to brown (about 5 minutes).
  • 3 Add the onion, pepper, carrots and garlic. Stir occasionally while cooking until the vegetables are tender, 5-6 minutes. Add the shredded cornbread and mix well. Slowly pour in the chicken broth and stir softly.
  • 4 Grease a baking dish with butter. Add the filling in one uniform layer.
  • 5 Bake until completely hot and lightly browned on the surface, about 20 minutes.
  • 6 Garnish with queso fresco and cilantro.
