An Italian friend of mine had an Italian restaurant and used this recipe for over 30 years. When he retired, he graciously consented to passing it on to me. I will share it with you. It is excellent as meatballs, in spaghetti sauce, hamburger patties, or on pizza. This Recipe was prized by him and revered by many. We are lucky to have gotten this Recipe.
Black Bean, Chorizo & Sweet Potato Chili Absolutely Delicious! Made a few changes though. I use Italian sausage and if you do not like a lot of heat use sweet sausage and cut back on the hot peppers used to adjust to your taste. This was a hit with kids and adults that do not even like sweet potatoes!
Sausage and lentil simmer. This tastes so nice. I made it with pork and apple sausages and used chorizo instead of pancetta. Green lentils instead of puy lentils. I also used sweet potato instead of carrot and red wine vinegar instead of white. I also added a little bit of Worcestershire sauce. Delicious.
