    Louis Pujol's Note:

    an authentic recipe of the spanish dish, fabada. i enjoy the dish for it's rich, meaty flavor which comes from the broth that contains saffron and juices from the meats. fabada beans are a special white bean that is grown ONLY in Austurias, Spain so it's very hard to obtain which makes it a little expensive.

      Mmm... ethnic comfort food! I didn't have access to traditional beans so I used "great northern" beans and it was still delicious. The combo of chorizo, ham, and beans was very satisfying, and anything saffron in it is good! I served this with a spinach, walnut and manchego salad. I did not need the extra butter because our chorizo had enough fat in it.
