Chorizo Chili

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Cook: 5 hours


8 servings (2 quarts)

I modified a bean soup recipe and came up with this wonderful chili. I make it mild, since that's how my family likes it, then I just add Tabasco sauce to spice up my bowl. Feel free to make it vegetarian by using soy chorizo and vegetable broth. —Jenne Delkus, Des Peres, Missouri
