Black Bean and Chorizo Chili

Fall is fast approaching. One of my favorite cool-weather meals is a warm bowl of chili. I'm excited to share this recipe, courtesy Muir Glen, for a healthier bowl of chili, made with hearty black beans and tasty chorizo. Enjoy!

1 pound chorizo sausage, casing removed and crumbled, or bulk chorizo sausage
1 large onion, chopped
1 large yellow or green bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) Muir Glen organic fire roasted tomatoes or regular diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup water
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained, rinsed
1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Crumbled white Mexican cheese (such as queso fresco), if desired
Substitution: If chorizo is unavailable, substitute Italian sausage or pork sausage, but the flavor will be slightly different. 
1. In 4-quart Dutch oven, cook sausage over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until browned; drain well. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender.

2. Stir in tomatoes, water, beans, chiles, chili powder and cumin. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Serve with cheese.
