'BOTW' Chorizo and White Bean Stew

As I sit here on the plane on my way back from NYC, I'm tired and hungry. I refuse to eat one more package of pretzels. Instead, I'm scrolling food sites and am becoming even more, right?!

I'll skip dinner tonight, but I am so trying this recipe some time very soon. 'Best of the Web' Bon Appetite's Chorizo and White Bean Stew. Served with some sliced crusty bread and butter. Oh yes!

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling
1 pound fresh Mexican chorizo or Italian sausage links
1 large onion, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 sprig thyme
2 15-ounce cans cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
5 ounces baby spinach (about 10 cups)
Smoked paprika (optional)

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 15-20 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet. Add onion, garlic, and thyme sprig. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5-8 minutes. Add beans and broth and cook, crushing a few beans with the back of a spoon to thicken sauce, until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add spinach by handfuls and cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes.

Slice chorizo and fold into stew; add water to thin, if desired. Divide stew among bowls; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with paprika, if desired.
