Chorizo is a fresh sausage that can be mild or spicy-hot. It can be found in Mexican markets or major grocery stores. This toss-together dinner in a bowl is packed with lively flavor.
Remove casing from chorizo, if present. Crumble chorizo. In a 4-quart Dutch oven cook chorizo and garlic until chorizo is brown; drain off fat.
Stir broth, salsa, chipotle pepper, oregano, and cumin into Dutch oven. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Stir in vermicelli and zucchini. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes more or until vermicelli is tender but still firm, stirring occasionally. Remove Dutch oven from heat; stir in 1/3 cup of the mozzarella cheese and the cilantro.
Transfer to a warm serving dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese. If desired, garnish with additional cilantro. Makes 6 main-dish servings.
