Rustic Chorizo Chili

With Superbowl Sunday quickly approaching, I thought it was high time I shared the chili recipe that I make often for the hubby. If you follow me on Instagram you certainly have seen me at one point or another making this recipe.  Honestly at this point, because I make it so often, it takes me about 10 minutes to prep. It’s very easy to make. Please note when it comes to chili, some people have preferences to some beans over another, so feel free to swap the beans out.
