Take the sausage casings off the chorizo by cutting a slit down the side of the sausage, and emptying the insides into a skillet. Cook the sausage until completely done.

 After it is done cooking, set sausage aside but reserve the juice in the pan.

In a medium skillet bring the chicken stock to boil. Add Orzo and cook until al dente (about 9 minutes). Be careful to keep stirring so the orzo doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Set orzo aside.

 Cut the bottoms of the peppers so they're able to stand independently together while baking.

 Stuff the peppers with the orzo mixture and place on an olive oiled baking dish. Put in the oven for 25 - 40 minutes (depending on your oven). Mine were in for 30 minutes and it worked perfectly.

My comments: I actually don't have an opinion of my recipe of the week because I couldn't try it because I have been under the weather, but I got a whole bunch of positive feedback from my Dad. Chorizo, peppers, orzo...what what....
