This is a great dish to make ahead and serve while you are passing out the Halloween candy. We fill up mugs and sit outside waiting for the little ghosts and goblins to fill their plastic pumpkins while we fill our tummies with warm creamy corn that has a big kick with the homemade chorizo.

To double the pleasure serve over corn bread and enjoy with a spoon.
