Soyrizo and Pepper Sandwich

OK, so it is not chorizo; however, this sandwich does make a terrific meal on a fall or winter night. Chorizo is a general term for sausage used in Spanish, Portugese, and Mexican cooking. Typically it is made with pork, spices, and chilis. Soyrizo is made with soy beans, a healthier option than chorizo. Don't worry about the flavor, your family members and friends will never know if you don't tell them.
