Cornbread Stuffed with Spicy Chorizo

Last week I wrote about seeking inspiration from the – Texas State Fair food and talked about a few things that I was going to make for the big game. (We) The Longhorns won! yipppeee! My inspiration for this recipe is a twist on the totally awesome Fletchers Corndogs that are so famous at the TSF. After receiving a few requests to share the recipe of the “Cornbread Stuffed with Spicy Chorizo” – I thought I would share it with you… JUST YOU. It is the easiest and fastest gluten free treat to make for a hungry crowd. Trust me if you have the ingredients on hand which I say … always buy double as backup because people will want more! It is that good!

So I am only going to share this secret recipe with YOU but please … please … don’t tell anyone!

Pamela’s Cornbread Mix – I really love this mix because it is the perfect blend of sweetness and texture. I also love her products because she gives you options to make the recipe several ways – i.e., dairy free or sugar free. I have used this mix with butter and sugar and with oil and agave. I personally prefer the oil and agave because it is just better for you to not add more sugar into your diet. The agave avoids the bounce that you get from sugar. Try it!

Niman Ranch Chorizo Sausage – I LOVE this Chorizo and am so happy they make it GLUTEN FREE!!! This is a spicy, fully cooked sausage flavored with paprika, garlic and peppers. I sliced up the chorizo into 1/4 inch rounds.

Mix the cornbread mix in a bowl, use your favorite pan, mine is a non stick square muffin pan, add the mixture about 3/4 high and then add the chorizo pieces approximately 5-8, just don’t go too high to the edge of the pan. I put the muffin pan on a baking sheet to avoid overspill and baked them in the oven at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes depending on your oven.
I love this combination of sweet cornbread and spicy chorizo. When I bake it with the oil I don’t feel as though I a missing something and don’t even put butter on it because it is so moist! If some weaker taste buds in the crowd need to tone down the spicy I suggest having some honey butter or just honey on hand. Select beverages are also recommended but I will leave that for a topic for all on it’s own!
Enjoy!
