Chilizo - Guest Post by Author Christopher McPherson



Recipe from Christopher McPherson, Author of:
Murder at Eastern Columbia
and the James Murray Mysteries

Chilizo
(named this because it's made from Chili & Chorizo)

1/2 lb. kidney beans
1/2 lb. black beans.

Soak them overnight.

Put them in a crock pot on low for ten hours or high for five hours. Add enough water to the pot to just cover the beans. 

1 lb. chorizo (more or less as you like)
1 can diced tomatoes

About an hour before dinner cook the chorizo in a frying pan.  Make sure to break it into little chunks.  Drain and add to crock pot.  A few minutes before serving, stir in the tomatoes.  Heat all until hot.  Serve with cheese and/or diced onions on top.

This recipe is silly easy to make and there are only three ingredients (beans, chorizo and tomatoes).  Chorizo can be purchased with varying amounts of spiciness, so the Chilizo can be mildly spiced or very spicy.  In addition, it's very low fat, very high in good carbohydrates and taste, to boot!
