Apple Chorizo Cornbread Stuffing

I love Thanksgiving.  Okay let me be honest I love Thanksgiving stuffing!

And Thanksgiving mashed potatoes and Thanksgiving gravy…. I’m all about the side dishes.

Chorizo, cumin and oregano give this stuffing a hearty bite, while the cilantro and apple add a sweet perk. Make your favorite cornbread recipe or feel free to use a quality cornbread from your local bakery.

  27. Vianney, in 30 years I have never made anything but traditional savory stuffing with celery, onion, etc…. and now you’re tempting me to try a SW style. It sounds incredible. Chorizo, cilantro and apple, oregano, cumin = omg
