Chorizo and White Bean Soup

I have seen a number of recipes for this soup and now that the heat has broken (sort of anyway) in Southern Louisiana I decided to give it a shot. Can anyone tell me what this soup is called in Spanish? Fresh, locally made Chorizo Fresco is a fine, fine thing by the way.

  1. Add some green to this, like collard, or turnip, or even arugula or spinach, whatever you have around, not much, and it'll taste even better.

    1. I did you use some arugula in mine and i think it like it better than the kale i have used in the past.

      no one knows what the spanish name of this soup is?

      Chow Hounds, you disappoint me

        Are you thinking of "fabada"? That's a classic white bean soup from Spain (mostly the central and northern coastal cuisine).

          If Wikipedia's definition is to be believed then yes, I guess that I am.

          I made my without blood sausage and that is just fine with me.

          I used to live in Ireland and oh how I tried to stomach those things. Not for me

          Thanks for the help

      2. Jacque Pepin does a five minute version in his Fast Food My Way book. I keep the ingredients handy as it is one of my wife's favorites. I chop up some tomatoes, basil and garlic and spoon over the top with a little good olive oil.

        1. I made the Portugese version for my Harvest Party. I might switch ti up next time to give the beans more prominence. maybe less tomato paste...
