Forgot about but while look for take on chili found this in my "The Professional Chef" copyright 1969 Olla podrida "Spanish Nation Sopu" is a Spanish stew made from pork sausage (chorizos), beans, rice and an inconsistent, wide variety of other meats and vegetables, often including chickpeas (Garbanzos), depending on the recipe used. The meal is traditionally prepared in a clay pot over several hours. It is eaten as a main course, sometimes as a single dish, and sometimes with ingredients separated
