What’s in my super delicious Paleo Chicken Chorizo Chili? Well, let’s see… Chicken, Chorizo, Chili Powder, Ground Cumin and as many other vegetables as possible! The daub of guacamole on top is a perfect flavor compliment to the finished plate too.
Put some already cooked chicken pieces in a pan with some water (or broth if you prefer), and let it start simmering while you get everything else together.
Start your chorizo cooking in a separate skillet now and be sure to peel off the icky clear casing if you’re using sausage shaped chorizo. I used about four ounces of Mexican chorizo that came in a square-ish container.
When the chorizo is definitely fully cooked, toss it into the pot with the chicken and water/broth.
Next add your spices. You’ll want a heavy dose of chili powder and about half that much of ground cumin. Add some salt and pepper if you want to, and some red pepper flakes if you have them.
Then add your veggies and simmer for as long as you can wait! As usual, I only waited for about ten minutes, but ideally an hour or so on a very low simmer with the lid on would be better. Below are the vegetables I used.
- Bell Peppers
Be careful – this dish is very red and very messy. Aren’t all the most delicious foods messy? Do not wear white. You have been warned. 🙂
