Spaghetti with Chorizo, Black Beans and Lime

Serves 4

Recipe by Rebekah Peppler

INGREDIENTS

1 lb spaghetti

1 lb cured chorizo*

6 cloves garlic

1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 teaspoons chili powder

juice of 2 limes

1 lime, cut into wedges, for garnish

kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

*If the chorizo at your local grocery store comes in a 14-oz. package, using just 14-oz. is fine.

PREPARATION

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, until al dente. Drain through a colander, reserving about a cup of the pasta water.

Thinly slice the chorizo, and finely mince garlic. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat, then add chorizo. Cook for about 2 minutes, flipping halfway through, until warm and lightly browned on each side. Reduce heat to medium-low, add minced garlic, and cook for another minute. Stir in black beans, chili powder, lime juice, and 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water, and stir to create sauce. Add the cooked pasta and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a serving bowl.

Garnish with additional slices of lime, if desired.

For this recipe, you'll need a 12-inch skillet and a large pot to cook the pasta.

You can get a great skillet here (pictured left, worth the price, will last forever) or a more affordable decent one here. Any stock pot that's at least 8 quarts will work, but a 12-quart pot (pictured right) is your best bet. Get a simple one here.
