  1. In a large deep saucepan on medium heat, saute the onions, garlic and bay leaf in the olive oil for 1-2 minutes until translucent.
  2. Add the sliced Chourico and let it cook for about 2 minutes until slightly browned. Add the remaining ingredients except the parsley flakes and let it come to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes stirring on occasion.
  3. You will notice the chili is slightly watery. To thicken, simply mash about 1 cup of the beans with a fork, stir back into the chili and let it cook until it reaches your desired consistency. Cover and set aside. The chili will thicken as it cools.
  4. Remove Bay Leaf before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
