Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 6 to 8 oz Mexican chorizo, (I use El Popular)
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 serrano pepper, seeds and membranes removed, diced
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp chipolte pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 15.5 oz can pinto beans, drained

Instructions

  • Place ground beef, chorizo, tomato sauce and water in a large pot over medium heat. Bring to a boil while breaking up meat with spoon until it is a fine, even texture. Boil until meat is mostly cooked through. (Meat will be more brown than pink).
  • Add the remaining ingredients and simmer, stirring occasionally, until onions and peppers are soft, about 20 minutes.
