This is a very easy and savory stew, delicious over steamed white rice. It really does improve the longer you simmer it. Adjust the hotness to your taste.
Add some bay leaves, use fresh garlic, olive oil and instead of smoked sausage, try chorizo. - 16 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this last night. what a great easy dinner. I did not have tomato sauce so I used a can of chopped tomatoes. I simmered it for an hour. The smell was great ! At the end I added some chopped fresh cilantro. I served it over brown rice. Very good. - 26 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was great! I love chic peas and always try to fine a dish to cook them with. The only thing I did was add more garlic powder and half the red pepper called for, I am not to big on spicy hot food and it was just perfect. Husband and kids loved it, made over white rice. This will def. be made again, I might add some other veggies in it next time. Thanks! - 05 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
