  • 1 pound chorizo sausage, casing removed

  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 4 cups crumbled cornbread
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

In a skillet over medium heat, cook the chorizo sausage until browned, breaking it into crumbles as it cooks.

Remove from the skillet and drain excess grease.

In the same skillet, sauté the diced onion, celery, and bell pepper until softened, about 5 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the crumbled cornbread, cooked chorizo, sautéed vegetables, chicken broth, beaten eggs, dried sage, salt, and pepper.

Mix until well combined.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the stuffing is set.

Serve warm as a delicious side dish alongside your favorite main course.
