Soy Chorizo Chili and Fries Recipe

I used to own a popular Southern California food truck. One of our most popular items was this dish. Soy chorizo, despite its name, has a wonderful chorizo flavor and barely takes any time to prepare.

This is a crowd-pleaser that just happens to be vegetarian. Customers sometimes felt betrayed when they discovered it was meatless!


  • 1 pound soy chorizo (I use Melissa’s®)
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 cup broth or water
  • One 14-ounce can of black beans
  • One 14-ounce can of pinto beans
  • 1 pound potato fries or fresh potatoes julienne cut
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro
  • 1 cup finely shredded Jack or cheddar cheese


Heat a heavy-bottomed pan to medium-high. Add the soy chorizo and diced onion. Cook and stir for 1 minute.

Add all of the dry spices and turn the heat down a bit. Cook for 1 minute, stirring a little.

Add the broth or water, black beans, and pinto beans. Bring to a simmer for 10 minutes.

Check the seasoning and add more salt or heat as desired. Toast, air-fry, or deep fry the potato fries.

Serve a generous dollop of chili on top of the fries. Garnish with cilantro and shredded cheese.
