I love chorizo. But it isn’t very healthy as it is high in both fat and sodium. I am trying to be very careful with what I eat and found a recipe to make chorizo and decided I could do it with ground beef. It tastes very similar to chorizo but is a bit healthier. I’m sure it could also be done with ground turkey but I haven’t tried that yet. It is delicious with brussels sprouts and together they make a wonderful meal.

1 t chili powder
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t salt
1 t fresh ground black pepper
1/2t oregano
1/2 t cumin
1/4 t cloves
1/4 t coriander
2 T white vinegar
2 T water
1 t olive oil
8 oz ground beef

Heat frying pan with olive oil. Add garlic and stir till fragrant, about 10 seconds, add ground beef and rest of spices, vinegar and water. Chop the beef while cooking so it is fine without any large clumps.

1 lb brussels sprouts
1 t salt
1 t olive oil

Boil a pot of water, slice brussels in half. When water is boiling, add salt and brussels. Cook for 8 minutes, drain and rinse with cold water. Add to beef in frying pan and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes until brussels sprouts reach desired doneness.
