Mexican (I think) Chorizo sausage purchased-what happens next

Hey - this week I'm using some of my Chorizo - I'm going to remove the casings and dice (my chorizo is already cooked - but if it wasn't - I'd just crumble it and brown it in a skillet) - and put on some nachos with some refried beans and lots of cheese - bake until the cheese melts. Mmm... Its a take on Emeril's Chorizo and Bean nachos. Good luck! Sounds like you are on your way to a good recipe already!

When you first started cooking away from home, what were some of your disasters?

I was not allowed in my parent's kitchen - unless they weren't there. My grandmother let me help her some - but when I left home - my culinary skills were lacking.
I have since found that I love to cook and I am willing to try anything. So of course I have stumbled along the way.
One of my most memorable disasters - that my husband brings up a lot - is when we were first living together in our apartment. I decided to bake Cinnamon Rolls (from the can). After an appropriate amount of time - they weren't done yet - so I turned them on broil to brown the tops. Oh my - how quick they browned - then turned black!! Smoke was everywhere and the Smoke Alarms started going off. My husband - who had been in the shower - came running in (naked) "WHAT Happened!" I'm pretty sure I cried that day. (and was afraid the apartment smoke alarms would automatically call the fire department - but it didn't)
I've come a long way since then - If I think of more I'll post them :)
