Cocido de Salchicha, Beans y Paprika (Sausage, Beans & Paprika Stew)

267

Happy New Year! We made it into 2018! I wish you all the very best for this New Year! Thank you for all the support during the last year, without you, my blog would not even exists.

I know I have been away from posting recipes for quite a while, 2017 was a very busy year for me, especially at the end of the year, I had lots of bookings for my Mexican cooking classes, but this year I am planning to post recipes more often, I promise!

The first recipe of 2018 is this delicious “cocido” (stew) that I made this afternoon for lunch, perfect for a January cold day. We went to Valencia last week to welcome the New Year and we arrived yesterday to an almost empty fridge, but I couldn’t bear the thought of going to the supermarket, I feel very cold, so I decided to make use of all the little bits that I still had in my fridge, it is amazing what you can come out when you are hungry!

This recipe is very delicious and so easy to make, I love the fact that I just threw everything in my casserole dish (dutch oven) and listo!

The stew doesn’t really have a proper name as I just basically used what I had, so I just called it “Sausage, beans & paprika stew”, let me know what you think if you make it, I would love to hear your thoughts!
