3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Onion, thinly sliced
3 Garlic Cloves, chopped
7 ounces Chorizo, sliced on the diagonal
1 Bay Leaf
2 1/2 cups Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas), rinsed
2 tablespoons of Chicken Broth
1 small Tomato, diced
Course Black Pepper

Basic Instructions

In a medium saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chorizo, and bay leaf and cook until the chorizo is lightly browned (about 3-5 minutes), stirring frequently to keep from burning. Add the rinsed garbanzo beans and chicken broth and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes and pepper to taste. Buen Provecho!
