Asturian Bean Stew

Fabada Asturiana

The central component of Fabada, the famous Asturian stew, is the large white bean called fabes. A major Asturian crop, the fabe boasts a thin skin that gives way to rich, buttery flesh. When stewed, it soaks in the surrounding flavors while adding a comforting creaminess.

Serves 6


2 oz. slab bacon, finely chopped

4 oz. ham steak, cut into ½ inch cubes

1 pkg. (3.5 oz.) GOYA® Chorizo, cut into ½ inch slices

2 tbsp. GOYA® Sofrito

2 packets GOYA® Ham-Flavored Concentrate

1 packet Sazón GOYA® with Saffron

4 cans (15.5 oz. each) GOYA® Cannellini Beans

1 small MORCILLA (blood sausage), about 4 oz


1. Add bacon to medium, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring with wooden spoon, until fat is rendered. Add ham and chorizo; cook, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown on all sides, about 7 minutes. Add sofrito, ham-flavored concentrate and sazón to pot; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
2. Add 2½ cups water to pot. Using wooden spoon, scrape up any morsels stuck to bottom. Bring water mixture to a boil. Add beans and morcilla to pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until flavor comes together and mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.
3. Transfer morcilla to cutting board; cut into ½ inch slices. Return to pot. Evenly divide soup among shallow serving bowls.
Tip By La Cocina Goya

Save Time and Add Flavor with GOYA® Sofrito

Sofrito - a puree of tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cilantro and garlic - is used as a cooking base in many Spanish dishes; like rice, soups and stews. But washing, chopping and cooking down the vegetables can be time-consuming. Instead of hassling, simply open a jar of GOYA® Sofrito and add the fresh-tasting mixture to your favorite dishes. Then enjoy the authentic flavors you love, without the work.
