Black Bean and Chorizo Chili
We’re not sure whether it’s the chorizo sausage, cinnamon, or semisweet chocolate that gives this chili its secret ingredient, but reviewers agree on one thing—it tastes spectacular. Docwife raves, “Made this for the Super Bowl and there was not a drop left! Very easy to make and the house smelled wonderful. I would definitely recommend making it a day ahead and letting the flavors meld. I’ll make it again!” Chorizo is a firm Mexican pork sausage. If you can't find it, you can use hot Italian sausage instead, but to get the intended flavors of the chorizo, we suggest adding a teaspoon of Spanish paprika.
