  • Category: Dinner
  • Method: Stovetop

Ingredients

Scale
  • 140 grams chopped chorizo
  • 500 grams ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 x 125 grams fresh mozzarella balls, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a heavy pot with a lid, cook your chorizo over medium heat until it starts releasing its orange oil.
  2. Add the ground beef, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until it's just cooked through.
  3. Add the cocoa powder, oregano, and tomato paste and stir to combine.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and kidney beans. Stir it all together, and bring the whole thing up to a simmer.
  5. Turn the heat to low, clamp the lid onto the pot, and let the whole thing simmer for about 20 minutes.
  6. After everything has had a chance to get to know each other, turn the heat off under your pot, and stir in the chopped mozzarella. Season to taste. Serve hot. Crushed up tortilla chips at the bottom of your bowl never hurt anything.
