While I was researching Mexican cuisine I came across a traditional dish called Sopa de Lentejas, which is basically a lentil soup/stew with Mexican seasoning. I noticed that in some recipes chorizo was used. I decided to make my own simplified version of this traditional stew using chorizo and Supremo's Crema Supremo sour cream to top the dish. This sour cream has a distinctive tang to it that just says Mexican food! — Diane Balch, Simple Living and Eating
