Recipe by Raquel
"I grew up on chourico, and this dish is a Portuguese comfort food that my mom always made. I took it upon myself to replicate it with a bit more kick, but even with the changes, it reminds me of being a kid. It's such a warm and satisfying dish."

uncooked white rice
dried chourico sausage, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices
Spanish onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups
red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 (14.5 ounce) can
fava beans, rinsed and drained
Please add 2-3 cloves of garlic finely chopped, when frying the onions and chourico. I have asked AR to modify the recipe as it was a mistake to be left out, but hasn't been edited. Enjoy! Also, a great alternative to fava beans are cannelini beans (white beans).
Wife loved it. Like the OP said below, I think it would be better with the garlic added.
Very good! I actually left out the Italian seasoning but this was delicious will make again!
This certainly is comfort food! I had to substitute kidney beans for the fava beans and some jarred spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce (didn't have all the ingredients in my cupboard). It came out great! Thanks for the recipe!
