Fill up on a robust chili that's richly seasoned with chorizo, smoky chipotle chiles and fire roasted tomatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chorizo sausage, casing removed and crumbled, or bulk chorizo sausage
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large yellow or green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted tomatoes or regular diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Crumbled white Mexican cheese (such as queso fresco), if desired

Directions

  • 1
    In 4-quart Dutch oven, cook sausage over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until browned; drain well. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender.

    Stir in tomatoes, water, beans, chiles, chili powder and cumin. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Serve with cheese.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Chorizo is ground pork sausage that has been flavored with a blend of spices, including garlic and chili powder. Mexican chorizo is made with fresh pork, and Spanish chorizo is made with smoked pork.
  • tip 2
    If chorizo is unavailable, substitute Italian sausage or pork sausage, but the flavor will be slightly different.
