Recipe

One of my go-to dishes for a quick and easy dinner for groups is this Slow Cooker Chorizo Spiced Pork but it isn't the best solution when you have a group of mostly vegetarians coming over for dinner.  Instead of brainstorming a completely new dish, I decided to change up this dish and use chickpeas instead to create a delicious, spicy, fiber packed dish that is great in tacos, over rice, or with some added broth as soup.  To add some greens, I used Swiss chard but you could use collard greens, kale, or spinach.
