Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a pot, cook diced bacon.
  2. Add onion, celery and pepper, cook until slightly softened. Add garlic, and cook for a minute or so.
  3. Add Chorizo and brown lightly.
  4. Stir in tomato paste, then add about 8 – 10 cups of water, as much as you like, really, but that’s a good starting point.
  5. Give it a good stir to make sure all the tomato paste is dissolved.
  6. Add beans, oregano, cumin and lime juice or vinegar, and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until beans are softened, or just about.
  7. Then stir in squash, potatoes and cabbage. Cover loosely with lid ajar, and let simmer until they are tender, but not falling apart when you test the potatoes and squash with a knife.
  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve. Preferably with some thick, crusty bread.
