Chorizo is ideal for using in recipes with few other ingredients because it is packed with so many spices that it infuses the entire dish with flavor. In this recipe, dry, Spanish-style chorizo flavors Ro-Tel, another ingredient powerhouse consisting of canned tomatoes, chiles, and spices. Together, chorizo and Ro-Tel need little else than some fluffy white rice and spicy pickled jalapenos to make a delicious dinner. Read more about chorizo here.
Note: If you would like to schedule this cook, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, saute the chorizo in a medium skillet over high heat until crisp and rendered, about 5 minutes.
