I love chorizo and quite often whip up a stew like this for supper. It is very adaptable to whatever you happen to have around the house.
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced into half-moons
- 1 green pepper, seeded and sliced
- 2 fresh chorizo sausages, cut into 1 cm thick slices
- 1 potato, peeled and diced
- 1 (400 g) can white beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 (400 g) cans chopped tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon paprika (preferably smoked paprika)
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 spring onion, sliced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add in the bay leaves, onion, green pepper and chorizo.
- Saute for 2-3 minutes over a medium-high heat, then add the potato, beans, tomatoes, paste and spices.
- Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down very low and let simmer covered for 20 minutes.
- Stir the stew, then leave partially covered for another 20 minutes or until the stew is as thick as you like and the potatoes are cooked.
- Season to taste.
- Ladle into bowls and top with the spring onion.
This sounds a lot like Kale soup, which I love. Try it with some Kale and cut the tomato paste it is excellent, even my kids love it. Great way to get in some extra veggies for all!
Delicious, warm and cozy--perfect for the chilly fall evening it was. I didn't make any changes, except doubling the recipe and forgetting to top servings with the onions. After smelling the enticing aroma the stew filled my home with, I was ready to get to the business of eating it and totally forgot about the onions. :) Thanks for sharing your recipe!
