One of the best things about this quick weeknight meal (it takes just 10 minutes, tops!) is that you only need one skillet from start to finish. Using a single pan not only keeps clean-up at a minimum, but it also lends a deeper flavor to the dish, since the ingredients get sautéed right in the chorizo drippings. A sprinkle of cumin adds warm spice and delicious aroma to the stir-fry, while baby kale provides staying power. Never heard of baby kale? It’s a milder, more tender version of the green you’re used to seeing in the supermarket (try another hearty green, like spinach or collards, if you can’t find it). Scoop up each bite with soft, warm pita bread.
