“This is adapted from a recipe I found on the Weight Watchers site. The original recipe calls for cooking in a crockpot. Instructions for the crockpot version are included at the bottom. It makes about 5 servings--not a huge potfull.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the casing from the chorizo and begin to break it up and brown it in a medium saucepot. After a few minutes add the onion, garlic and green pepper and cook the mixture for about five minutes total.
  2. Add the beans and broth, then the cumin and bay leaf. Let it come to a boil and then simmer about a half hour.
  3. Add the lemon juice. (If desired, add salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of sherry. I did not think it needed any of that.).
  4. For crockpot use, follow the first step, then transfer all the ingredients into the crockpot and cook on low about 3 hours.
  5. Garnish with cilantro if desired.
