Sandman's Chorizo and Pinto Beans
Apr 10 2014
I went through Sandman’s, a friend and fellow LTBBQ member, carryout to replenish my beer supply. He said wait I have a sample for you, some of my chorizo. He handed me a plastic bag with a link of the chorizo and said it just came off the smoker not long ago. I didn’t see what a nice red color it had until I got out in the sun. He said he had used African meats recipe and used his pineapple vinegar in it.
When I got home I sliced a piece off and tasted it. Just about the best chorizo I ever ate! It was almost too hot for me but it was heat with flavor and you got the pineapple vinegar taste. I ate another bite then thought I got to save the rest for supper; just enough to make me something.
We had planned on eating my leftover chicken casserole; I had another can of pinto beans and the half can of fire roasted tomatoes left to use. Chorizo is great with beans so I would eat beans again.
I sautéed some chopped onions and garlic in a little olive oil then added the sliced chorizo and cooked awhile. I then poured in the can of drained pinto beans and tomatoes with juice. I would have liked some diced green chilies or green peppers too but was all out.
Onions, garlic and chorizo getting happy
