I'm back with one classic made completely from scratch! For those cold winter days in Chile or if you so happen to have a rainy summer here in the US and need some comfort food, here is your recipe! Very easy to make and incredibly delicious!
3 cans of Dark Red Beans, Low Sodium
1/4 cup chopped tasso, or chopped ham
1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onions
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped green bell peppers
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 bay leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
1/2 pound smoked sausage, split in half lengthwise and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 pound smoked ham hocks
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
4 cups chicken stock, or water
Remove from the heat and with the back of a heavy spoon, mash about 1/4 of the beans against the side of the pot. Continue to cook until the beans are creamy, 15 more minutes. Remove from the heat and remove the bay leaves.
Serve over rice and garnish with green onions.
