Chorizo Lentil Stew

Chorizo Lentil Stew

Ohmigosh, can we please just chat for a second about how much I LOVE chorizo?

Now I know, I know, I KNOW what it is made out of traditionally and I know that hey, it’s not the healthier sausage choice for the world.  BUT it’s spicy and packs a ton of flavor and I don’t really feel the need to apologize for flavor, you know?

My first run-in with chorizo was in high school.  See, every Friday I would treat myself to breakfast out, which usually meant Chick-fil-A or Sunshine Donuts and a massive Diet Coke.  Which, by the way, all sounds INCREDIBLE right now.  Remind me to eat when I’m done writing this.  But there were days where I would stop at Josie’s (another local Lubbock joint) to get two breakfast burritos and a drink.  One day I ordered an egg and potato burrito and a sausage/potato burrito when I was informed that the only sausage they had was chorizo…and did I want that instead?  Not knowing how my life was going to change I said yes, got an extra thingy of salsa, and went on my merry way to school.
