My family has been receiving a monthly CSA delivery from a local farm for some time now. All of the meats are pastured and naturally fed, so you know exactly what you’re getting out of your meat. The flavor of the meats are amazing as well. I never knew pork was so juicy and succulent…better than beef in my opinion!
One of the items in my CSA box this month was a pound of ground Chorizo Sausage. I don’t have much experience with chorizo, so I did a little guesswork and came up with this stew. I also did some digging in my pantry, and was lucky to have had the can items on hand! The spiciness and warmth of the stew are great for a cold, rainy day.
1 lb. Chorizo Sausage (doesn’t have to be ground)
3 medium Russet Potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2 inch pieces
1 medium Onion
3 large cloves Garlic, minced
4 c. Chicken Stock
14 oz. can Diced Tomatoes, drained
15 oz. can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
3 Tb. Butter
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Melt the Butter in a casserole over medium heat.
Add Onion, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the Garlic and Chorizo, and cook until the Chorizo is browned.
Add the rest of the ingredients, and bring to the boil.
Reduce heat to simmer, cover askew, and cook until Potatoes are cooked through, approximately 30 minutes.
The stew can be frozen in an airtight container for up to three months.
