2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the ingredients

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure ¾ cup [1½ cups] for the chili; finely chop the remaining onion for garnish.
  • Rinse the black beans.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro. Divide into two equal portions, one for the chili and one for garnish. 
  • Cut a small corner from the chorizo packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.


Cook the chili

In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the coarsely chopped onion, chili spice blend, and tomato paste, season with salt and pepper, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Add the beans, tomatillos, tomatoes, 1¾ cups [3½ cups] water, and half the cilantro and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chorizo is cooked through and the chili is thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chili to individual bowls. Garnish with the yogurt, remaining cilantro, and as much finely chopped onion as you like and serve.
