    Recipe Introduction

    This is a simple stuffing recipe but I think the pecans add to the taste.

    List of Ingredients

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    8 cups cornbread
    6 english muffins
    1/2 cup butter
    8 stalks celery -- finely chopped
    2 onions -- finely chopped
    1 1/2 cups toasted pecans -- chopped
    2 red bell peppers -- finely chopped
    2 green chiles -- roasted, peeled and
    -- diced (or 2 poblano chiles)
    1 pound chorizo sausage -- (or bulk)

    salt to taste
    1/2 cup chicken stock

    Break or crumble cornbread and English muffins into coarse crumbs and place in a large bowl. Heat 4tbl butter in a skillet. Add celery, onions and pecans and saute until translucent. Add with the red bell peppers and
    chiles to the bread.
