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.
- 5 cups crumbled cornbread
- 1 pound chorizo
- 1 large onion diced
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 3 celery stalks diced
- 2 apples of your choice diced
- 1 tbsp oregano
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 2 cups turkey or chicken broth
- ½ cup cilantro
Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 2 quart baking dish.
Bake the cornbread on a baking sheet for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted.
In a large skillet cook chorizo over medium high heat until brown.
Add onions, celery, oregano and cumin.
Sauté until lightly softened about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and add garlic and apples.
Continue to cook an additional 2 minutes.
Add broth to pan, stir to combine and loosen bits on bottom of pan.
Stir in cilantro and cornbread. Place the dressing into greased pan and bake for 40 minutes or until lightly brown.
Dressing can be made up to 1 day ahead. Cover and place in fridge. Reheat in oven until hot.

Sounds like a fabulous stuffing. I’ll have to revisit next year.
I am right there with you – bring on the STUFFING! I think it is the best part of the meal – as well as the mashed potatoes and gravy.
I’m with you – cornbread dressing is the best part of any Thanksgiving meal! I absolutely love this one! The chorizo AND the apple make this very special and quite delicious, I’m sure!

YUMMY – inventive and looks delish! Missed your visits – but me thinks I am not cooking stuff that is that interesting to others right now… the Bolognese Pasta is a great post, though!

I love chorizo, this sounds fantastic!! I’ve been craving cornbread stuffing lately too, not sure why, but this recipe would definitely do the trick 🙂

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
The chorizo sounds delicious in this stuffing!
Surely very tasty! I love the idea.
