This was terrific and quite easy to make. I also used chorizo, and made exactly as posted, except I did add a little fresh ground pepper. I also used fresh thyme, because I happened to have it on hand. Thanks for sharing!

I used 8 ounces (3 links)of andouille sausage. and leftover 3 cups cooked Recipe #364252. I used turkey stock I had frozen, added dried parsley, black pepper and pepper flakes. The chickpeas I rinsed and drained very well to remove any excess salt. I did simmer for 30-40 minutes because we weren`t ready to eat. This was so very good. My DH loved it and he doesn`t do greens. Thanks for the delish healthy good eats!
