This stuffing is the perfect alternative to ordinary holiday stuffing - packed with chorizo, this stuffing is sure to please the whole crowd.

Mmmmmmm, stufffffinnggggg. There is little more satisfying in this world than a big scoop of stuffing, on top of a slice of turkey, soaked in warm turkey gravy. Ahh, I’m making myself drool just thinking about it! This recipe, you guys, is totally drool-worthy. I mean what is not to love? Crispy ciabatta bread tossed with spicy chorizo, tender sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and an abundance of herbs and spices. Zach and I made this chorizo stuffing for the gazillionth time this past Sunday for our mock Thanksgiving dinner, and I’m still having dreams about it.
