I used the mexican chorizo (cause that is what i had) and i think it was fine! I used diced tomatoes - drained, put them on half the dish (hubby doesn't like tomatoes). I used 2 chopped jalapenos (full seeds and everything from the freezer), doubled the red pepper flakes, and immersion blended the concoction, about half was fully blended. I found it had a nice kick. Hubby enjoyed the dish and is even willing to have left overs tonight!
