Southwest Cornbread and Chorizo Dressing
Get out of your usual cornbread dressing rut and try this hearty version featuring chorizo sausage, butternut squash, mushrooms, fennel, and cilantro. This could almost be a one-dish holiday meal.
Choose lean chorizo in natural casings or, if available, in bulk without casings. You can prepare the dressing through step 4 up to 1 day ahead; cover and chill chorizo mixture, and store cornbread airtight at room temperature. Before continuing with step 5, let chorizo mixture stand at room temperature about 30 minutes.
