  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • Kosher or coarse sea salt to taste
  • 2 cups cooked canellini beans
  • 1/2 red onion peeled and sliced into thin strips
  • 2 fresh xcatic chiles (or blond or banana chiles) charred or roasted, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 pound Longaniza chorizo (or Mexican chorizo) casings removed
  • 1/2 cup bitter orange juice or its substitute
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

To Prepare

  • Preheat oven to broil. In a small roasting dish, toss to combine tomatoes, 2 tablespoons olive oil and a pinch of salt. Broil until tomatoes are charred and softened but still hold their shape, about 10 minutes. Transfer tomatoes to a large bowl and fold in beans, onions and chiles.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a small sauté pan over medium heat and cook the chorizo until crisp and browned, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add to bowl with bean mixture and gently fold to combine. Finish with bitter orange juice, cilantro and salt to taste.

    Making this tonight! I love sticking to and riffing off these recipes. My mother Juanita grew up in Southern California and always cooked amazing Mexican dishes in the 1960s and 1970s in Ohio, where no one else was eating such delicious food

    We spent much of this past winter in Merida — I *so* miss longaniza sausage, especially with scrambled eggs!

      OMG Lori, longaniza is amazing, especially if it was from Valladolid, so close to Merida. Hopefully we will all be able to go back there soon 😉

    Pati, re Bitter orange….I am unable to enjoy grapefruit due to my Cholesterol medication. Should I reduce the amount of vinegar since I cannot include grapefruit juice? Gracias for all your stories & historical facts re ingredients, the fusion of platillos due to the many cultures in our Heritage. We are definitely a rich melting pot of Sabòr. Martina

      Martina, you can skip the grapefruit juice and use more of the orange and lime juice. ​
