  2. In medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, cook chorizo for 5 minutes, remove from pan. In same pan, add onions and bell pepper, cook 3 minutes. Add zucchini and cook additional 3-5 minutes. Season vegetables with salt and pepper.
  3. Add chorizo back to pan and stir in HERDEZ® Chipotle Salsa Cremosa and butter. Cook another minute until butter is melted. Remove from heat.
