Ground Beef & Chorizo Chili

I will only have time to update today and Wednesday this week, as I’m heading off to Comic Con in San Diego on Thursday! I’m beyond excited, especially for the Lost panel on Saturday. I’m going to lose my mind I’m so excited! I can’t wait to see everything, especially some awesome costumes. I’ll also be at MC Chris‘s show on Friday at The Jumping Turtle in San Marcos. He always puts on a great show and if you can, you should check it out

I wanted to make a chili the other day, but I was growing tired of the same beef and pork combination I usually use. Kramer and I were talking about how awesome chorizo is, and then we thought, why not make chili with chorizo? This being Arizona, I ran out to the store to pick up some freshly ground chorizo and got to work. I didn’t have time to hang out at home all day and stir a pot of simmering chili, though, so I cooked the meat and dumped everything else in the crock pot to simmer for a few hours while I went to work and did other things. I was surprised how delicious the chili was! The chorizo wasn’t overwhelming and it wasn’t too spicy, either (although I do like things spicy). The flavors are incredibly rich and bold, thanks to the additions of bacon, cocoa, cinnamon, cumin, and more. The best part about this is that I knew I had to eat my chili with a fried egg, because nothing goes better with chorizo than eggs. Kramer ate his with cheese and sour cream, but for me, nothing can beat the creamy yolk of a freshly punctured fried egg, running over a plate of chorizo chili. I was in heaven, and you will be too after you give this a whirl!
