Ingredients

    10 oz. Soy Chorizo
    4.5 c. red onion, chopped into half moons
    1 t. red chili flakes
    6 medium sized potatoes, diced (w/ peel)
    1 c. or one small can el pato salsa
    15 c. Water
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 oz. dried cilantro
    1 T dried Mexican oregano (or reg.)
    3 T chopped garlic
    1 T smoked paprika
    1/4 c. lime juice
    16 oz. frozen Spinach
    3 c. canned pinto beans
    fresh cilantro, for garnish

Directions

In a large pot, cook chorizo over medium heat breaking it up occasionally with a wooden spoon.

Add red onion and chili flakes. Continue cooking until the red onions soften.

Add el Pato, making sure to scrape the bottom of your pot with your wooden spoon. Then, add in your bay leaf, oregano, dried cilantro, paprika, water, and 6 cups of water. Bring to a simmer, cover, turn to low and leave for another 10 minutes.

Add potatoes, cover. When potatoes are tender add pinto beans and spinach.

Bring to a simmer again. Taste and season with salt or vinegar/lime juice accordingly. If it's too spicy - add more water. But, remember - the heat heals!

Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and a sprinkling of hard cheese (can use Mexican queso anejo, or another garnishing cheese like Romano or Parmesan).

Feel better!

Makes 20 1.5-cup servings.

  • Tastes wonderful though next time I'll add a mix of beans and more spice. Loved it and will definitely make it a regular addition to my meal plans - even when I'm not sick!! - 6/20/10
