Sounds like a rice based dish would be called for...

I do have a good creamy cajun pasta that i've put taso ham and chicken into...

I am not a slow cooker person, my suggestion is find a recipe with chicken and rice you like and riff off it. Add the chorizo, chopped, as an additional ingredient. Chorizo likes garlic and lemon a lot... also consider some sherry in the cooking liquid (dry sherry) and also consider sherry vinegar if you have any need for acidity

Neither am I , but it is going to be cold Monday and the girlfriend loves soup, so I figured that would be easy and ready when I get home basically.

Here is mine.
Ingredients:
1- lb dry pasta (penne holds up to this well)
2- tablesp. Olive Oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2- tablesp. minced garlic
1/3 cup taso ham, diced.
1- cup chicken stock
1- cup white wine
1- tablesp. Cajun/creole seasoning
1- tablesp. sweet smoked paprika
2- tablesp. tomato paste
1- pint heavy cream
1- 15oz can diced tomatoes, drained
2 chicken breasts, or 4-5 thighs, or ...
Cook the chicken however you like it, grilled or baked. Season lightly with salt, black pepper and garlic powder and drizzle with some lemon juice.

Make the sauce:
in a large saute pan heat the olive oil over medium heat. and saute 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and stir, another 1-2 minutes. Add wine and chicken stock to pan. Using a wooden spoon scrape any browned bits off the bottom. Let liquid reduce to ~1/2-2/3 cup total. (about 8-10 minutes)
In a separate pan, heat the diced ham. Drain the fat, and add to the liquid.

Cook the pasta to al dente, not further, drain and rinse.

when the wine/stock is reduced, add cajun seasoning, paprika, a little salt and pepper to taste, and the tomato paste and stir well.

Add the heavy cream and when it starts bubbling, reduce the heat to low, let the mixture reduce some, till thickened. Add the drained diced tomatoes

Add the sauce to the pasta and mix. Add pasta to your bowl, dress with chicken, and shredded parm. cheese.

About 6 servings.

try chorizo in cider (chorizo en sidre)

https://binged.it/2H0791x

I would use hard cider and sherry vinegar - pimenton is nice but the chorizo is flavored with piementon

in Spain I often have chorizo... just slices of it - with a glass of wine or beer. Simplicity is its own reward in Spain.

Viva Espana

Buen Provecho
