Give Thanks: Corn Bread Dressing with Chorizo and Roasted Red Peppers
Traditional Thanksgiving fare is delicious, but sometimes it’s fun to change things up a bit.
I'll admit we sometimes go a little bit crazy with our Thanksgiving escapades. Whether it's serving our turkey with deep dark mole, or trading it in for duck or rabbit, we like to change the game every now and again.
But, that doesn't mean we don't love some of the traditions that come with the Thanksgiving meal -- including a nice big both of tender dressing.
This southwestern style dressing is the perfect way to liven things up without heading too far off course.
Buttery homemade cornbread acts as the base for this make-ahead recipe, which uses chipotle peppers, chorizo, and roasted red peppers to enliven a family favorite. As written, this recipe is more smoky than spicy, but you can kick up the heat by adding more minced chipotles.
It makes the perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving feast, but it's also great served as a main dish with a nice crunchy side salad, or a mound of tender cooked kale or spinach.
