Chili con Chorizo Recipe

We love to eat chili, whether it's vegetarian or with some kind of meat. This recipe was created because I a friend of mine gave me some chorizo to try and I decided to try it in my chili recipe. Most supermarkets carry chorizo, but if it's not available, I found that kielbasa is is a good substitution. —Debbie Limas, North Andover, Massachusetts
