Chilli has got to be up there as one of the best foods in the world. Chilli was one of the foods I used to ask my mum to make for me on special occasions with rice, yoghurt and mango chutney (for some reason that’s always been my favourite chilli accompaniment, try it, it tastes so good!). At uni chilli was on my regular rotation, normally in wraps with sour cream and chive dip smothered on top. Since we’ve moved in together Will and I have made chilli countless times.

The addition of potato makes it a hearty meal in its own right and the lime & coriander yoghurt cools the whole thing down perfectly.As much as I love it, it was time to mix it up a bit and try something new so we decided to try out this chorizo chilli instead. The original recipe we were inspired by can be found here, we changed it up a little bit but kept it largely the same. We couldn’t get the same kind of chorizo that’s used in this recipe, I’m not sure that kind of soft chorizo is really available in the UK but we used regular chorizo cut into slices.

    I have a love/hate relationship with chili. I feel like I really should like it, it’s hearty and has tomatoes but I just always find it lacking. I can’t wait to try this recipe, it sounds like everything it’s missing is right here.
