Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 450 g fresh chorizo sausages casings removed
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can no-salt-added white kidney bean drained and rinsed
  • 1 can no-salt-added mixed beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 2 cups packed baby spinach

Method

In large deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook chorizo and onion, breaking up chorizo with wooden spoon, until onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes.

Add garlic, thyme, paprika and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Stir in kidney beans, mixed beans, broth and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes.
