It's Sabado Mexicano and that means it's Saturday around here. It’s a soup kind of day. This one will warm you up with Mexican flavors. It’s hearty, full of vegetables and meaty too. Feel free to add any vegetables you like. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 12 oz Chorizo links –or smoked sausage
  • 1 cup chopped lean ham
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic pods, chopped
  • 4 medium potatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 2 -15 oz cans Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans)
  • 1 -15 oz fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 quarts chicken stock, water or both
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon hot smoked paprika
  • 4 oz chopped spinach, kale, chard or other greens

Directions

  1. Rough chop the sausage and ham. In a large stockpot, sauté sausage and ham to render fat. Remove all but a couple tablespoons of grease and add onions and garlic.
  2. Stir in the potatoes. Sauté for a few minutes to brown the potatoes. Stir in the chickpeas, tomatoes with juice and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Add seasonings and the spinach. Partially cover and simmer slowly for 2 hours.
  3. Note: You can use pintos, Mexican red beans – any bean you may like. Also, you can use 1 teaspoon regular paprika with 1/4 teaspoon cayenne if you cannot find the hot smoked paprika.

      Sabado Mexicano is alive & well with another one of your wonderful recipes, I a huge garbanzo bean fan. I love the "Nutrition Facts" thing for our recipes here.....it's not exactly accurate but gotta love the 205% of recommended daily fiber on this...(evil grin). Good to see you here, Drick!
