    • 1 clove garlic

  2. Toss your sauce on your cooked pasta (extra salt may be needed!).

In a medium saucepan, on medium-high heat, add your grape seed oil and chipotle powder & warm for 2 minutes.  Stir in your chorizo  (you’ll have to whip out your spatula to fully incorporate).  Let the flavors meld for about 10 minutes (be sure to stir – you don’t want anything sticking to your pan!).  Adjust seasonings as necessary.
