Chorizo and Black Bean Chili

Fall is the perfect time to pull out your crock pot and smell this delicious chili cooking all day long!

As soon as fall hits, I crave all of the soups, chilis, and crock pot meals! So that is why I decided to share with you a new blog series called Seven Sundays of Soups! Each Sunday, for seven weeks, I will share a soup recipe! Whether it’s chili or chowder, crock pot or stove top, each recipe will be BRAND NEW!

I actually started came up with this chorizo chili with inspiration from my husband. He mentioned the idea of chorizo in chili, and the idea expanded from there! Black beans, jalapeños, and cilantro combine perfectly with the chorizo for a deliciously different take on chili!
