This was super Pneuma! I normally use dried cured exported Spanish chorizo, but for this dish I used fresh chorizo. Maybe because it's fresh, it would not keep the form and had to fry it as is so the picture shows crumbled version. But, the taste was great. I love the simplicy of this bean dish. Also included some fried bacon and sliced red onion. This was great tapas dish and went really well with Spanish sangria. Besides the lemon juice, I also added sherrry vinegar to up the Spanishness. Made for ZWT 5. Thank you Pneuma for posting this yummy recipe.
