      Brown chorizo and ground beef in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Drain excess fat and set aside. Melt butter in Dutch oven then add peppers and onion. Sauté for 10 minutes until onions are lightly browned. Add garlic and sauté 2 minutes more.

      Add tomato paste and cook until color changes from bright red to rust. Add beans, tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes.
    • 4

      Bring to a simmer and stir in oregano, chili powder, cumin and bay leaves. Season with salt to taste.
    • 5

      Place Dutch oven directly on the grill grate and cook 45-60 minutes, adding liquid (stock, water or beer) as needed to prevent it from getting too dry.
