  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 3 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • 9 oz. smoked chorizo
  • 2 cups cooked beans (or 1 15.5 oz. can of beans
  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley finely chopped


  • In a large pot or Dutch Oven, heat oil.
  • Add onion and garlic. Saute until it starts to change color.
  • Add chorizo and saute for 5 minutes until golden brown.
  • Add beans, tomatoes and 2 1/2 cups water.
  • Add paprika, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer on medium heat and cook for about 15 minutes, until thickened.
  • Add parsley and stir to combine.


  • Instead of plain water, you can use chicken stock or vegetable stock for additional flavor.
  • Any kind of white beans can be used like navy beans, great northern beans or cannellini beans.
  • This bean stew can be customized the way you like it. Make a thicker stew by simmering it for a longer period of time or if you prefer a thinner brothier stew, cook it for less time. Please note that it will thicken as it cools, so you want to simmer it until it is a bit thinner than you like it. Even just 5 minutes after you turn off the heat, it will thicken quite a bit.
