Scott Linquist of Dos Caminos

Dos Caminos' chef Scott Linquist puts a Mexican spin on a Thanksgiving staple with this stuffing recipe. By using chorizo and roasted jalapenos, he adds some spice to a dish most people think they already know. Not only will your guests be impressed by this rendition, but they'll probably ask for it again next year.

Add butter and melt then remove from heat. In a large mixing bowl, toss cubed bread and crumbled tortillas with chorizo mixture.
