This is a super-delicious and hearty Portuguese stew, made by simmering together kidney beans, bacon, chorizo, kale and seasonings. Serve with potatoes or rice and bread. It's the perfect dish for the cold winter months.
Elephant garlic bulbs are a lot larger than the average garlic bulbs. They are also a lot milder. If unavailable, use ordinary garlic to taste. If savory is unavailable, use thyme instead. Tinned chipotle chillies in adobo sauce can be purchased in Mexican speciality stores or online.
I made this several years ago with homemade linguica and it was fabulous. I have another pot of it simmering away right now but with Cajun sausage instead of linguica (couldn't find any and didn't feel like making my own again) and it smells divine. Truly flavorful, hearty meal. - 20 Mar 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I did not have Ling but I used a combo of hot and sweet sausage and it turned out great! - 22 Jun 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
