If you follow me, you might remember a while back I made this awesome Tequila Spiked Pimento Cheese? It was right around the Superbowl. It was so good, and I loved it so much, I was inspired to use it as a base to spin off several recipes. One of those is these Pimento Cheese Chorizo Mini Bells.
I used to have such “food envy” about Mexican Chorizo. See, I couldn’t buy it where I lived. So sad, huh? And when it started becoming available, it was super pricey and usually frozen. So I learned to whip up my own Homemade Chorizo. Homemade Chorizo is quick and easy to make at home and problem solved!
I’ve been making a conscientious effort to reduce the amount of red meat my family eats, and I love this recipe that uses just a bit of chorizo and a whisper of bacto on lend enormous flavor the dish. The rest of the flavor comes from the vegetables and wine which marry beautifully with the earthy flavors of the lentils.
