Excellent chili. Made to recipe using boneless chuck we trimmed & cut into bite-size pieces. We like more beans-to-meat so next time would add maybe another can of black beans. Served with quesadillas & toppings for the chili.
Beef, Black Bean, and Chorizo Chili
This chili recipe—with chorizo, stew beef, and black beans—is a hearty dish that's certain to please the meat lovers at your table. Serve with classic condiments such as sour cream, chopped green onions, and shredded cheddar cheese. For a thinner chili, cook covered the whole time. You can prepare it a day ahead and refrigerate, or make the chili up to two weeks ahead and freeze (be sure to thaw overnight in the refrigerator).
