💭 What is Chorizo
If you are not familiar with Chorizo, it's spicy ground pork used in many Mexican dishes. Now while Chorizo tastes great, it isn't very diet friendly. Chorizo is relatively high in protein, it is also high in calories and fat, making it something you shouldn't consume often if you are trying to lose weight.
If you prefer a nice chili with a little less kick to it, then I suggest you try one of my other chili's. Either way, you can’t go wrong! Check these other Chili Recipes out: White Bean and Chicken Chili, Colorado River Turkey Chili, Spicy Chicken Chili.
