This is a deliciously different Cuban-inspired stew. I've had similar at a Cuban restaurant. If you can't find smoked sausage, use a good quality regular pork sausage. This is delicious over steamed white rice.

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

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
