Recipe Ingredients for "Chorizo" Beans (Vegan)

1 tbls olive oil
1/3 cup jalapenos, chopped
1/3 cup onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, smooshed/minced
1/2 cups Pinto Beans, cooked
1 tomato, medium
1/2 cup chicken broth, reduced sodium
3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Recipe Directions for "Chorizo" Beans (Vegan)

  1. In a medium/large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add the onions and chile - cook for 5ish minutes. Then add garlic and cook for another 2-3, or until everything is getting translucent and tender. (To keep the recipe low-fat, I tend to add a couple tablespoons of water into the pan whenever I think things are cooking/browning too quickly)

  2. When cooked, put the peppers and onions into a bowl off to the side, cause now you need the pan to cook the "chorizo" or in this case Soyrizo (which is my soy chorizo product of choice, you can use whatever). Since its already cooked through, you're basically just going to want to heat it through and add a bit of brown color to it.

  3. While the "meat" cooks, drain and rinse the beans. Reserve half of them in a bowl, then mush up the other half.

  4. When the Soyrizo is done - add the pepper/onion mixture, tomato, and all the beans. Stir and cook for just a minute or so, then add the broth and cilantro. It should be kinda runny - so if its not, add more broth.

  5. Bring this to a boil, then down to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until it has thickened. Once to that point - remove the pan from the heat, stir in the lemon/lime juice and ENJOY!

  6. Great for tacos, burritos, with corn chips or even a fried egg!
