Monday's Leftovers: Red Rice With Chorizo

Monday's Leftovers: Red Rice With Chorizo

If you think yesterday's chorizo was easy to make, you'll be equally impressed with this effortless rice dinner. The recipe uses the same spicy sausage and salsa that was prepared in Sunday's dinner.

This one-pot meal, complete with vegetables, pork and nutrient-rich red rice, is sizzling with flavor. Didn't grill on Sunday? With store-bought ingredients, there's still virtually no prep required on your part. For the recipe,

  1. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  2. 8 ounces chorizo, sliced 1/4 inch thick
