“I always loved fava beans stewed Portuguese style. But there is always something missing from the recipes I have. I adjusted the spices and added some chourico, a Portuguese sausage similar to linguica or chorizo. I think this version makes a great dish. Make sure you have plenty of crusty bread for dipping in the sauce!”

My husband's family is from the Cape Verde Islands and the dish is so close to a dish his mother makes....

I had these last night at the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament in New Bedford last night - this version is very good, but different than the ones at the "festa", which were in a much browner sauce and tasted like there was no tomato sauce at all. Also, they tasted like they might've been cooked with smoked ham hocks or something, as they had a distinctly meaty flavor but had very little chourico. I liked your recipe very much; I also liked the version at the feast, just wondering what might've made those so different.
