Worthington Loma Linda now makes a convenient canned vegetarian chorizo that may be used to spice up some of your favorite dishes. The whole family will love this dish!

Serves 6-8. Prep: 10 minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes. Total time: 30 minutes.

Note: I have used Loma Linda products for many years, and they are very convenient, delicious meat substitutes. Recently I received samples of new products from Loma Linda Foods, and I have used them in this recipe.
