INGREDIENTS

For Buffalo Chicken Rangoons:
19 Oz.Package smoked chorizo sausage links
6 large
Bell Peppers
1 Tbsp.
Cooking oil (avocado or olive)
2 Tsp.Salt, divided
Onion, diced (I prefer purple in this recipe)
3 ClovesGarlic, minced
1 CupCooked rice and quinoa blend (1/2 cup uncooked plus 1 cup water/broth) - I used a blend of jasmine rice and red quinoa I mixed myself.
1 LargeFresh tomato, diced (or 1 can diced tomatoes, drained)
1 CupFresh cilantro, chopped
2Fresh jalapeños, sliced 
8 Oz.Shredded cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and begin cooking rice-quinoa blend on stovetop.
  • Smoke chorizo links in Pit Barrel® (per manufacturer instructions) for 30 minutes or until cooked all the way through. We hung 4 of them in the brat hanging basket and the 5th one we cooked on the grill grate.
  • Meanwhile, slice peppers in half and place in a large baking dish.
  • Coat both sides of peppers with cooking oil and sprinkle with about 1 tsp of salt on both sides.
  • Roast peppers for 15 minutes in oven.
  • While peppers are roasting, sauté diced onion until tender.
  • Add minced garlic to onions and stir about 30 seconds until fragrant. Remove from heat.
  • Dice fresh tomato, chop cilantro, slice jalapeños, and shred cheese, set aside.
  • Once chorizo links are finished cooking, remove from smoker and allow to cool 5-10 minutes.
  • Chop chorizo into small, bite-sized pieces.
  • In pan with onions and garlic, combine chorizo, rice-quinoa blend, diced tomato, chopped cilantro, and 1 tsp salt.
  • Tightly pack roasted peppers with filling and top generously with shredded cheese and sliced jalapeños.
  • Place peppers on grate in smoker and smoke for 10 minutes to soak up smoke flavor and melt cheese. Remove from smoker and serve!
