Things to do with Chorizo When you're poor

Moving to the land of Flat has introduced me to many new food items. The only Chorizo I knew was a hard, cured sausage like a pepperoni or a summer sausage. Apparently this is not true of Mexican chorizo. Last night was one of those scrape-the-back-of-the-cupboards nights, and all I had left in the house was a package of 6 chorizos, some lentils, and some rice.


6 chorizos, about 1 pound. removed from their jackets and crumbled up.
1 cup lentils
1 cup rice
4 cups water
garlic powder

fry up the chorizo meat until it starts to brown, add spices. throw in lentils, rice and water. stir.
bring to a nice boil, stir some more, turn down to medium heat, cook 40 minutes COVERED, stirring occasionally.

Easy, not too involved, deliciously yummy! Makes enough for two people plus lunches and have enough for another meal left over, so this should feed 4 people easily.
