I couldn't find chorizo where I live so I used Polish sausage. Other than that I followed the recipe. It was okay, but a bit bland. If I make again I'll use some more spices and maybe tomatoes.

Thanks for the post!! I enjoyed this dish on my travels, but worried I would never be able to imitate it. The more "authentic" recipes call for pork parts I either can't get, or are unwilling to use. This truly has all the flavor without the "parts."

My husband worked in Brazil for a couple of years and has told me many times how good feijoada is and how much he craves it. Well, I gave it a try with this recipe and it as a hit. As it cooked and filled the kitchen with its wonderful smell, he called a Brazilian friend and described it - it made his Brazilian friend homesick just hearing about it! Thanks for the great authentic recipe!

My husband is Brazilian and even he was highly impressed by this one. I followed the directions as stated except that I couldn't find chorizo at the local store and ended up using keilbasa. I will look for chorizo for next time, but in any event, this recipe gets the traditional flavors without needing to use the more traditional and less conventional (here anyway) meats, and with more ease overall. Excellent!

Beautiful flavor - I used a locally made Mexican chorizo. I changed this into a crockpot recipe. Cut the water to 1/2 cup, turned it on at 11AM for 6 hours on low. After 5 hours I peeked and thought the crockpot had made the recipe bland looking so I added 1 14oz tin of Mexican tomatoes - excellent result . Thanks Chia for a keeper
