Wine Spots Carneros Chardonnay

Lima Beans and Chorizo

Wine Spots Monterey Chardonnay makes an excellent wine and food pairing for this recipe.

Serves 10

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 
1 clove garlic, minced 
1 small onion, minced 
1/4 lb. chorizo, finely chopped
3 - 10 oz. packages frozen baby lima beans
1 clove garlic, sliced 
1/2 cup sherry 
1 bay leaf 
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 
1 tbsp red wine vinegar 
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley 
3 tbsp chopped pimento or 1/4 c chopped pimento stuffed green olives 
Salt and pepper

Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and minced garlic and stir until softened, not browned, about 2 minutes.

Add the chorizo and stir until heated through, about 4 minutes. Add beans, sherry, sliced garlic and bay leaf. Heat for 5 minutes allowing the liquid to reduce.

In a bowl whisk the vinegar with the 2 tbsp olive oil.

Remove the bay leaf. Add the warm bean mixture to the dressing and toss with parsley and pimento (or green olives).

Season the beans with salt and pepper, to taste.
