This is an intense, richly flavored blend of South American and Mexican flavors with several layers of texture on the pallet that I categorize as medium heat.
Add or decrease cayenne as you wish to suit your own taste.
Heat oil or fat in heavy bottom pot over medium high heat – Add the pork and cook stirring till meat is almost completely cooked – add Chorizo by squeezing out of casing in small marble size lumps. Continue cooking for a few more minutes then add the onion, bell pepper and all spices. Cook till onions are soft. Add beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and water – stir well and bring to a soft boil. Lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes uncovered stirring often to prevent sticking.
