I got the idea for this from Sam Sifton's article in the NYT "Best Dressed" I decided Wednesday night was a great night to have stuffing. It turned out to be a delicious weeknight supper, and we ate it for breakfast with a fried egg on it. —Rona Wald

In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350
Heat your high sided large saute pan and add the olive oil.
Saute the onions for about 10 minutes on medium heat until they are caramelized
Then add the chorizo and continue to saute until the delicious chorizo fat is rendered into the onions and the chorizo caramelizes as well.
Add the celery saute for a couple of minutes
Add the sweet potatoes incorporating all of the ingredients.
Saute all of the above for about 5 minutes on medium heat
Season to taste with sea salt, I skip the pepper because the chorizo has enough spice
Transfer the above ingredients into a casserole dish
Keep the pan on a low heat
Melt the butter in the same saute pan add the garlic and dried spices for a minute until they release their aroma
Mix in the bread and stir to coat. You may want to add a bit extra butter. Just cause you can.
Mix the bread into the casserole dish until everything is incorporated
Ladle the broth over the entire dish
Place in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes to an hour. Check 20 minutes in and you may need to place a piece of foil loosely over the dish so the top layer does not over brown.
