This Cuban Chickpea dish is both delicious, satisfying so good. A true comfort food. It has a lot of flavorful ingredients such as ham, bacon, Spanish Chorizo, and diced veggies. It can be served on top of white rice or by itself with crusty bread. Either way, trust me, you will not be able to stop eating this garbanzo dish. Enjoy
