Upscale Frito Pie

This is a nod to Texas where this dish has its origins. It’s simple, hardy, and tasty. I left out the chipotle peppers and went with guajillo chilli for a more fruity flavor, but it still has some heat. I hope you like it.

1 pound chorizo
1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 4 oz can green Chili’s
1,red onion diced
1 15 oz can pinto beans
