I love chorizo but chorizo didn’t always like me. Recently I found a local smoked meat market that makes their own chorizo. It is much lower in fat and doesn’t cook out an excessive amount of grease the way some do while maintaining the spicy flavor. First thing I wanted to make was soup. I imagined a healthy and tasty black bean soup loaded with beans, chiles and corn and now a chorizo sausage that was lighter with very little fat. It was terrific if I do say so myself! And the best thing of all was I didn’t have to share. Those who won’t touch beans don’t know what their missing!
