1 tablespoon butter
1 – 15 ounce can pinto beans, drained, rinsed

8 ounce Mexican chorizo
1 tablespoon avocado oil
Over medium-high heat add butter to a medium sauce pan, melt.
Next, add shallots and peppers. Sauté until shallots are fragrant. Next add chopped bacon, sauté for 2 minutes more.
Next add beans and bbq sauce. Stir until all in sauce pan is well incorporated. Set pot aside on back burner on low heat.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add avocado oil. When heated, add chorizo and cook for about 6-8 minutes, stirring meat often. Do not cook chorizo hard, just until done, sausage should be cooked but soft.
With a slotted spoon, scoop meat up, allowing any fat to drip off and add to bbq bean mixture. Mix chorizo into beans.
Plate and enjoy with a side salad. Or any of these suggested side dishes.
