tips & techniques
Cook the rice
1 Cook the rice

Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

Prepare the ingredients
2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Cut off and discard the stems of the bell peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Drain and rinse the beans.

Prepare & dress the carrots
3 Prepare & dress the carrots

Peel the carrots; grate on the large side of a box grater. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a medium bowl, whisk together the date syrup, vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil. Add the grated carrots and as much of the chopped jalapeño pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the chorizo & serve your dish
4 Cook the chorizo & serve your dish

In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chorizo, sliced onion, sliced bell peppers, and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Add the guajillo sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), drained beans, and 1/4 cup of water. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until coated and the chorizo is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked chorizo and sauce, cheese, and dressed carrots. Enjoy!
