You will come to crave this rico chili stew when the cold weather begins to set in. I have several recipes of my own, but my favorito has always been this homemade chorizo chili-I think it gives a special Mexican toquecito to a Southwestern classic. A cup of steaming chili accompanied with cream, purple onion and queso fresco is all you’ll need to heat-up even the coldest of winter days.

Ingredients

  • 3 dried ancho peppers
  • 2 dried guajillo peppers
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 2 serrano peppers, finely chopped
  • 1/2 whole medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • 1 lb pork chorizo
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 stem fresh cilantro
  • 3 cups cooked beans
  • Salt, to taste
  • Mexican cream
  • Queso fresco
  • Diced purple onion

Directions

  • 1
    Begin by boiling the dried peppers in two cups of water. After the mixture has come to a boil, remove from heat and let cool. Wait until the peppers are completely rehydrated before using.
  • 2
    Next, warm the olive oil in a large pot (3 quarts) over medium heat. Add the tomatoes, chili peppers, onion and garlic, then sauté for one minute. Add-in the chorizo afterward and stir occasionally until completely cooked.
  • 3
    Last add the water, cilantro, beans and season with salt as desired. Cover the pot and reduce to low heat; simmer for 25 minutes to let the flavors combine fully.
  • 4
    To serve, garnish each dish with a bit of crema mexicana, diced purple onion and queso fresco. Buen provecho!
