Chile, Chorizo and Avocado Pizza
1 link Johnsonville Chorizo, casing removed
3/4 cup Frontera Roasted Tomato Salsa
1 cup shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese
2 tbsp. chopped poblano chiles OR
2 tbsp. diced green chiles
2 burrito size flour tortillas
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1 ripe but firm avocado peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Prep: 15 minutes, Cook: 10 to 20 minutes, Serves: 4

1. Crumble chorizo into a small skillet and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and drain well, blotting between 2 layers of paper towels; chop into very small pieces.

2. Spread equal amounts of salsa, cheese, chorizo, chiles and green onions onto tortillas, in that order. Grill over indirect heat for about 5 to 10 minutes, rotating pizzas occasionally with tongs to avoid burning tortillas.

3. Remove from grill and top with avocado and cilantro.

Wine Suggestion
Merlot - The spicy chorizo finds its ideal match in a red ? but one soft and silky enough to work with the avocado.
