      Four Bean Chorizo Chili
      1 Pgk Mix
      1 1/2 cups finely diced onion
      1/2 pound chorizo
      2 tablespoons vegetable oil
      1 pound plum tomatoes, diced

Simmer soup for 45 minutes. Season to taste with salt. Continue simmering 15 minutes. Remove Corn Husk Garni.

      NOTE: If there is not enough liquid in soup, add additional water or cooking liquid from beans.
