“Living in Mexico I have access to great chorizo. I have made this with both the red and the green, but prefer the green. FYI the green comes from tomatillos, cilantro, and jalapeños. I buy the beans precooked on the plaza here in Chapala. I do all the chopping and dicing before I start cooking. It makes life a lot easier. The cooking time is approximate. Hope you enjoy this original recipe.”
