My husband hates beans and when I found this recipe I thought I'd take a chance -- I'm really glad that I did! I did have to substitute turkey pepperoni and turkey Italian sausage for the chorizo because we don't eat pork but this is an excellent recipe and great flavor! Awesome over hotdogs and freezes well.
