    Spicy Chickpea and Chicken Chorizo Stew

    Spicy Chickpea and Chicken Chorizo Stew

    Inspired by a classic Spanish soup, this recipe substitutes smoked chicken chorizo for the pork version--saving on fat and calories. Hearty chickpeas and fiber-packed kale round out this healthy and comforting dish.


    Ingredients
    2
    teaspoons
    Olive Oil
    3
    links smoked chicken chorizo (or other spicy smoked chicken sausage), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1
    medium onion, diced
    1/4
    cup
    tomato paste
    2
    cloves
    garlic, smashed
    4
    cups
    low-sodium chicken broth
    2
    15-ounce cans low-sodium chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    1
    28-ounce can diced tomatoes
    1
    bay leaf
    2
    teaspoons
    smoked Spanish paprika
    1
    teaspoon
    kosher salt, plus extra as needed
    1
    teaspoon
    freshly ground black pepper, plus extra as needed
    1/4
    teaspoon
    cayenne pepper
    5
    cups
    chopped fresh curly kale
    Directions
    In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and sauté chorizo and onions until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add the tomato paste and garlic. Stir well to coat the ingredients with the tomato paste.
    Transfer this mixture, plus all the other ingredients except the kale, into the bowl of a slow cooker. Cover, and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
    Uncover, stir in the kale and cook for 30 minutes more. Discard the bay leaf and season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
