Chorizo Chili Recipe
- 1 pound ground beef chuck
- 1 large pork sausage such as Mexican Chorizo
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 medium onion diced
- 1 bell pepper diced
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups beef broth
- 1 tablespoon hot sauce optional, if you’d like to add more heat to your chili
- Prepare the ingredients by slicing pork sausage into ½-inch pieces, and diced onions and bell peppers.
- Add 1 teaspoon of oil to a large skillet or soup pot over medium-high heat. Then add the onion, and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add the ground beef, break the meat into smaller pieces, and add pork sausage to the pot. Cook for 6-7 minutes, until the meat is browned. Drain off any fat that accumulates.
- In a large soup pot over medium-high heat, add 1 teaspoon oil and diced bell peppers, then cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the meat mixture to the pot.
- Add garlic powder, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, tomato paste, sugar and dried oregano. Stir until well combined.
- Add the beef broth and stir well. Bring the mixture to a low boil.
- Then reduce the heat to low (or medium-low) to simmer the chili, uncovered, for about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
- Taste and add more salt and optional hot sauce if preferred.
- Remove the pot from the heat. Let the chill rest for about 5 minutes. Serve with optional toppings and enjoy!
This recipe is fairly spicy, and you can reduce the amount of chili powder and cayenne powder for less spicy chili.
To thicken the chili fast, mix in the cornstarch slurry, and stir constantly until it thickens.
