This is a Bon Appetit recipe for rich creamy smokey Chorizo and Bean Stew that tastes like something from a Spanish restaurant. Great with crusty bread to sop up the wonderful juices from the bottom of the dish. I used Turkey Chorizo sausage from Whole Foods, but you can use Italian sausage links. Use the smoked paprika if you can, it adds amazing flavor.
