Cowgirl lunch is seriously one of my favourite fast and flavourful meals. And just because it’s called cowgirl doesn’t mean it isn’t good for cowboys! This is jam packed with beans, meat and dark greens so da boyz will like it too. It’s called cowgirl lunch because it was one of the first meals I ever cooked in a skillet and honestly I felt like one cool cowgirl while making it!
Chorizo, Beans & Dark Greens
This dish is full of flavour, and all that flavour is because of the chorizo. My all time favourite chorizo is from a local Berlin butcher known as The Sausage Man Never Sleeps. These sausages are full of intensity that will blow your mind! When I first started eating sausages, I was a little sketched out because they felt full of mystery. Like what all is in them and what kind of meat is used. These chorizos are top 8 free and did I mention the sausage man is allergic to mustard? So he knows what he is doing when it comes to allergies. The moral of this tangential story is that you need good chorizo for this dish.
Your chorizo is the sole giver of flavour, so be sure to get ones with good spice.
When it comes to the dark greens, I have used both kale and spinach. Both are excellent. If you want to add a bite to your meal, I would suggest going with kale. When you use spinach, the meal contains mostly soft textures. The choice of greens is a personal preference and maybe even a seasonal one depending on where you live.
Skillet or bust?
If you don’t have a skillet you can still make this dish, just make sure to use a heavy pan. If you have a skillet, this meal will add very nicely to your seasoning!
So cowpeople saddle up those cutting boards and get cooking!
