TVP Chorizo

If you have been following me, you know I love Mexican food. I always have too. Two things I do not like though are mole sauce and until now chorizo. The last time I tried it was about 20 years ago. It was greasy, gristly and just gross.

Lately I've been wanting to give it another go. I bought the chile's two or three months ago and I've been waiting for what I don't know to try it. I think it was because I was sure I would not like it. I finally looked up a bunch of recipes and came up with my own. A lot of them called for tofu but I wanted to try TVP. 

So, let's get to it. Here is what you will need. 
1/3 cup of diced onion
1 tsp oregano
2 cloves
1/2 tsp salt
2 dried guajillo chile's (I seeded mine but you don't have to, it's totally up to you.)
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup tvp
1 tsp no beef bouillon
1 cup water for the chile's
1/2 cup water for the tvp

Bring 1 cup water to a boil and remove from heat. Add the onion, oregano, cloves, salt, chile's and vinegar. Cover and let sit for about ten minutes. 

Bring 1/2 water to a boil and remove from heat. Add the tvp and no beef bouillon. Stir it up and let it sit. The tvp will absorb all of the liquid.

After ten minutes, put the chile's and spices and about 1/2 the liquid into a processor and process until a nice puree has formed. Make sure those cloves get processed. Poor the puree over the tvp and stir it up. 

Poor the tvp into a fry pan with the remaining liquid and over medium heat, let it cook until all of the liquid is absorbed.

Serve on corn tortilla's with avocado and tomato. Vegan cheese too if you like. Enjoy!!
