My husband is from Fall River, MA (high Portuguese population) and we've been searching for soups and stews for him to take to work. He is a very picky eater and he LOVES this. "A keeper" he said. I am not fond of canned veggies, so I used fresh green beans added at the 20 minute mark, then cooked for another 20 minutes and it came out wonderful. Next time we might try adding some cabbage. :)

This dish is best with fresh green beans! When I make it, I replace the tomato sauce with a can of beer. Mine is not really like a stew, but a hearty dish with enough broth to dip some nice crusty bread....

This was one of those recipes that my family would make when I was growing up but they would never share the recipe! I substituted kale and fava beans for the green beans and it came out very good. The leftovers were even better.

I thought this was a good base to start from . I partially cooked pieces of chicken then made the soup in the same pot , the chicken in this recipe added alot of flavor . I did not use green beans , I'm not a fan of canned veggies instead I added frozen kale at 50 cents a box you can't go wrong. I believe authentic Portuguese Chouricco Stew has kale not green beans...
