    JanetB-KY's Note:

    posted for ZWT 2006, this is from the Food Network site and sounds pretty darn good. Chorizo is used in a lot of Southwestern cooking as well as the cooking of Spain. It's one of my favorite sausages to use.

      Delicious meal. I opted to grill my quesadillas once they were assembled. One min/side on Med-Med.High heat did the trick. Wonderful.
