At their large midday meal, the Spanish generally eat soup as a first course. This soup is a tasty and easy version of Eugenia's bean soup, complete with Spanish chorizo and vegetables. Traditionally, this soup would be made with dried garbanzo beans, which must be soaked overnight and cooked for over an hour. To reduce cooking time, this recipe uses canned beans.
