1 teaspoon olive oil
450 g fresh chorizo sausages casings removed
1 onion thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can no-salt-added white kidney bean drained and rinsed
1 can no-salt-added mixed beans drained and rinsed
1 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
2 cups packed baby spinach
In a large deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook chorizo and onion, breaking up chorizo with a wooden spoon, until onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes.
Add garlic, thyme, paprika, and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Stir in kidney beans, mixed beans, broth and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes.
