Yummy! This was good and spicy! I used 2 ribs of celery instead of the green pepper, and also increased the garlic and chorizo. This was very tasty and spicy! I garnished mine with shredded pepper jack cheese. I also found that I needed to add more salt than was called for.

Wonderful flavour and hot hot spicy! very good! I used a whole red pepper because that was what I had in and used 4 cups of chicken broth cus I didn't want any left over. Ate some for lunch today and froze the rest. Thanks for posting I will be making it again.

I have always made my BBS with Kielbasa, decided to try this. Made it in crock-pot. What a difference! YUMMM!!! This was so good, that I am re-making tonight (because we ate it ALL!!) for lunch throughout the week! Only change is I used some multi-colored frozen peppers that I had in freezer instead of fresh. Hope the smell if it cooking doesn't have me up all night wanting to eat it!
