Basic Instructions

This recipe calls for par-boiled potatoes. For this, add the diced potatoes to salted water and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. Instead of boiling on the stovetop, you can microwave the potatoes for 5 minutes in a microwaveable dish with water.

Add the oil to a large olla (traditional cast iron pot), over medium heat, and saute the onion until translucent (about 2 minutes). Add the ham and sausages to the olla. Cook for 3 minutes. Next, add the chickpeas, potatoes, and chicken broth to the onion-sausage mixture. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add the greens and simmer for an additional 10 minutes. Add salt to taste. Add the hard boiled eggs. Serve and enjoy! We recommend serving in a terra-cotta clay cazuela.
