Lentils and Chorizo Stew for #SundaySupper

Happy Birthday, #SundaySupper!  Congratulations, go out to Isabel the founder of #SundaySupper.  I remember when first noticing tweets with the hashtag #SundaySupper in early 2012 and was intrigued; a virtual dinner table once a week with amazing dishes.  It is the connections we make around the table with our family, and friends that are so important in making us whole.  Dinner around the family table just once a week on Sunday's is a wonderful way for busy families to connect at least once a week. Food, and conversation is what makes the connection.  I am so excited to be part of this wonderful movement. - So, in order to celebrate the #SundaySupper movement each contributor had to choose one recipe t from a 2012 #SundaySupper event.  There are so many fantastic choices...and I choose Lentils and Chorizo Stew from the "Recipes that keep you warm" event by Paula of Vintage Kitchen Notes.  

You may know that in this house everyone adores lentils; I just make them the Northern European way. Lentils soup with bay leaf, onion, carrots, potatoes, salt, pepper and accompanied by Wieners.  But, paprika, red peppers, and chorizo...that is a completely different flavor to me.  This is Paula's recipe and she lives in Buenos Aires - a long way from Northern Europe.  I was intrigued by this recipe from the time I first saw it.  Lentils, chorizo, paprika, and red peppers...all the flavors I {the entire family} loves. So finally, I have the perfect opportunity to make this amazing dish.

I followed Paula's original recipe but used chicken broth instead of veal broth, plus I left out the bacon but used the entire package of chorizo {6.5 oz.} instead.  The flavors of this dish are full, bright, flavorful, and to me unexpected. Perfect on a winter day; it is an amazing dish that I certainly be making again this winter.   I served it with crusty bread, and a large bowl of salad. Take a look how beautiful it is 

This is what the girlies think about it.
