  • 1/2 onion, diced small
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans Muir Glen Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes

  • Step 1

    Cook the chorizo in a large skillet until browned. Drain the grease and set aside the sausage.

  • Step 2

    Using the same pan, sauté peppers and onion for 5-6 minutes, until onion is translucent and tender. Add one can tomatoes and the sausage. Cook on low.

  • Step 3

    In a blender or food processor, blend second can of tomatoes and all spices. Once combined, pour into skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes.

  • Step 4
