This is a go-to quick weeknight meal for me. Maybe it should have a different name - I just call it black beans and sausage. :) I add extra chipotles because DH loves spicy. It makes a lot - I usually half it.

That's not even close to a real Brazilian feijoada. Even if you wanna go with the light version, the pepper goes in the sauce and we don't use thyme.

It's missing about 90% of its meat. A quarter of a pig goes in when made right. This should be called 'diet feijoada' or something.
