  • 1 large 10 inch chorizo cut into 4 inch pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 onion

  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 cup pasta noodles
  • Water, enough to cover the ingredients and two inches over

  1. Allow the chickpeas to sit in water overnight. drain excess water and set aside.
  2. Peel the garlic, onion, carrots and potatoes and set aside.
