Hominy and Chorizo Chili

Directions

  1. In a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, bring sausage and 1/4 cup water to boiling. Cook sausage, covered, for 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Uncover; cook for 8 to 10 minutes, turning to brown. Cool for 5 minutes on cutting board. Diagonally cut in 1/2-inch slices.
  2. In a large Dutch oven heat oil over medium-high. Cook onions, garlic, carrots, sweet pepper, and thyme for 7 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until almost tender. Stir in the chile powder and paprika; cook for 30 seconds. Add the cooked sausage; cook for 1 minute. Add the hominy, broth, and tomato paste; bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the tomatoes; cook for 2 minutes, until tomatoes just begin to wilt. Top servings with oregano.

From the Test Kitchen

If you can only find the hard or "cured" kind of chorizo, substitute half the amount called for in the recipe and cut it into 1/2-inch pieces. Skip the first step and saute the chorizo in the oil in the Dutch oven, then add vegetables and follow the recipe as written except for the adding the sausage, which has already been done.
