You would never guess that this recipe uses canned beans. Don't skip the chorizo as it adds a lovely bottom note to the flavour of the dish. Muy facil!
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil (preferably Spanish olive oil)
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 small red onion, finely chopped
- 1 medium green pepper, seeded and finely chopped
- 1⁄3 cup chorizo sausage, chopped (approx. 1/2 a sausage)
- 1⁄2 cup canned tomato, drained and chopped
- 2 (16 ounce) cans black beans
- 1⁄2 cup chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 4 green onions, chopped (for garnish)
- Drain one can of black beans and discard the liquid. Save the liquid from the other can of beans, and set it aside.
- In a medium sized sauce pan over low heat, heat the olive oil until it is fragrant; then add the garlic, red onion, green pepper and chorizo. Cook onion is tender, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes.
- Add the chopped tomatoes and cook another 10 minutes.
- Add the beans, bean liquid from the one can of beans, chicken stock, cumin, hot sauce and red wine vinegar. Stir to blend. Correct the seasonings and simmer, uncovered until heated through, about 20 minutes.
- Garnish with green onions and serve.
I was really pleased with the results from this recipe, even though I didn't include every ingredient. I served these flavorful beans over rice, and it was delicious!
Very flavorful! Nice blend of veggies and the chorizo gave great spice. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall 09
5 Stars, just perfect! Used pork chorizo from a Latin grocer, and indeed it was the key to the perfect spiciness and the agreeably thick sauce. DH also loved it, but this meat and potatoes man requested that some cubed ham steak be added to his next bowl. I thought these beans stood up for themselves. Served with the perfect complement: Spiced Brown Rice with Peanuts #292476. Based on USDA nutritional data, used 1/3 cup of sweet onion as equivalent to 1/2 small onion. Will make this frequently as we seek to increase fiber in our diet, and this was outstanding. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
