This recipe can be made with fresh kale but will require a longer cooking time. Use frozen kale to whip this up quickly.
  • 1 bunch of fresh kale or a 16 ounce bag of frozen, chopped kale
  • 1 lb of linguica or turkey linguica (chourico can also be substituted), sliced into rolls about ½ inch thick
  • 16 ounce can of Bush’s Baked Beans with Onion
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • optional: 1 large potato, peeled, quartered and cut into small pieces
  1. If using fresh kale wash it and then remove the thick stem. Cut the kale into strips about ½ to 1 inch wide. Set kale aside.
  2. In a large pot add the onion, garlic and the sliced linguica.
  3. Saute until the onions have softened a bit. Add in the water, beef broth and the can of baked beans.
  4. Add the kale to the pot and stir to moisten the kale. Cook over a medium heat until the kale has softened – about 20 to 30 minutes. If using frozen kale cook for about 10 minutes.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
  6. If your adding a potato then add it to the pot with the kale. Continue to cook until the kale has softened.
