Thanks to the great folks at Smoky Ridge® for making this Chorizo Garbanzo Bean Stew recipe post possible. As always, my comments, opinions, and love for chorizo are my own.

Even though it’s finally Spring, the cold still has a grip on us. On these cool, crisp days, I often crave something warm and comforting. How about you? For me, this stew is ideal.

In Mexican cuisine, potatoes and carrots pair often. Dishes like chicken soup, Miner’s enchiladas, tostadas, and picadillo all commonly feature them.

As for the chorizo, two things I specially like about these Smoky Ridge® Yo Amigo Chorizo Sausages are, first, they have the right spice blend, so I don’t need to add much else. They blend beautifully with the tomato sauce and red wine. The second reason I like them is they stay together and don’t fall apart when cooked, which lets me see whole slices in the final stew. I like that.

I do recommend patience when cooking the sauce. Like any other stew, the cook should be long and slow so that all those delicious flavors blend together to perfection. Don’t hurry it! Serve with rice or simply with fresh bread from the oven.

Cooking tip: For this recipe, avoid cooking wine, which usually includes salt. Any dry drinking wine is good.
