bif (15,696 posts) Chorizo and black bean souphttp://cookingwiththemark.blogspot.com Ingredients 1 pound chorizo sausages a bunch of greens, chopped I used baby spinach and did NOT chop it - just removed the stems1 medium size onion, chopped 1/2 green pepper, chopped 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 T cumin black pepper to taste 6 cups reduced sodium chicken broth or stock 1/2 c dry sherry I skipped this - my sherry is ancient and needs to be thrown out, plus it goes more with cream based soups - if you need extra liquid, I recommend using a good beerCheddar cheese, shredded I skipped this as well, but would probably be good - I had cheddar biscuits on the sideDirections Grill the chorizo until nicely browned. Let cool and chop into bite size pieces. In a large pot, sautÃ© onion until soft. Add green pepper and garlic and sautÃ© for 5 or 6 minutes. Add broth, chorizo. beans, greens, cumin, black pepper, and 1/4 cup sherry. Cook for 1/2 hour or so. Add the rest of the sherry about 10 minutes before serving. Pass a bowl of cheddar cheese to top the soup.
I did last night. It came about because I was STARVING while perusing our site and frank is always linking to their cooking and baking forum, and next thing I knew, I had stumbled upon this:http://www.democraticunderground.com/115733138Of course, I had to tweak it a bit, so my updates are in bold. It turned out great! Even the picky kids liked it! And it was a good meal for the diabetic husband. Every once in awhile, I can find a smidgen of common ground with a DUmmy.
There's a recipe for chicken enchiladas some chick named Pam put up there I've been wanting to try...to see if the dog'll eat it.
One of my moles posts recipes at the DUmp.No cross-posting, though. I won't make it that easy for the DUmmies to find me!
Wrong use of Chorizo.It isn't like a hard sausage that can be grilled. That would be salchichas.
Yes indeed! I was shocked the OP said it was good. A pound of Chorizo?!?! For a diabetic. Chorizo is mostly orange grease. Delicious in small amounts mixed with eggs or queso fundido, but a pound in soup? Holy guacamole! Heart attack city!
I don't use more than 4-8 ounces for a large pan of paella. I've never used a whole pound, and I sure wouldn't put that much in soup.
