This recipe was scheduled to have been posted yesterday, but after looking over the products in the giveaway I decided to rerun a couple of recipes using those products. I will repost another today, but first I have to share this new one. This is so good I wish I could take credit for it, but all I did was read it on Hispanic Kitchen. It was posted by SONIA MENDEZ GARCIA BRENNAN and just reading it I knew it was going to be good. We tried it over the weekend and knew this was not only a keeper, but a definite post. It's just too good to keep secret. I had to make a couple of changes based on what I had on hand, but they were such minor changes that, for all intents and purposes, this is still basically the original recipe. So, if you like it, drop by Hispanic Kitchen and let her know how much you like it.
CHEESY CHORIZO BREAD
1 Mexican chorizo sausage
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
