Chorizo Cornbread Stuffing
An easy, no-fuss, make-ahead crumbly stuffing loaded with so many amazing flavors and a kick of heat that the whole family will go crazy for! It’s so good, you’ll want to make this every single year!
I am so excited to be a part of Anolon‘s Make It Yours campaign where a handful of bloggers and I take holiday side dishes from our favorite cookbooks, blogs, family members, etc. and add our own personal spin to it. And so this was the perfect time for me to make Megan’s Chorizo and Cornbread Stuffing, something I’ve been wanting to make for weeks ever since I attended the Iowa Cornquest back in September when I personally tried her creation made by Mrs. Country Cleaver herself!
Now I don’t know about your guys but the stuffing is my absolute favorite part about Thanksgiving. Not the turkey, not the 12 different pies on the dinner table, but the stuffing. The stuffing all baked to perfection and soaked in gravy. And then when you make Ross’ moistmaker using leftovers and soaked up gravy stuffing – yeah, that’s what I really look forward to every single year.
So with the stuffing, I have to use cornbread. Not store-bought but homemade, cheesy, crumbly jalapeno cornbread. But if you’re short on time, go for the store-bought one. I won’t judge you. Sometimes we really need those shortcuts, especially during the holidays!
Once you have your cornbread all ready to go, all you need is some chopped up veggies, some crumbled chorizo and you are set. And with the help of Anolon’s Tri-Ply Clad 5-Quart Covered Saute with Helper Handle, this stuffing will come together so quickly and easily, leaving you to plan for a stress-free Thanksgiving meal. If you’re serving this as a dressing rather than a stuffing, you can even make this ahead of time and just pop it in the oven 20 minutes before serving!
