I found this on a blog called Two Azores Chicks from two cousins whose parents were from the Azores. They grew up with this version of Feijoada, which is slightly different from the Portuguese and Brazilian versions. Our former exchange student from Brazil got us hooked on Feijoada,so I'm glad to find another delicious version!
