The idea for this excitingly different dish originated during my stint as a chef preparing a hearty “Seafood Succotash” soup at the Old Drover’s Inn and restaurant in upstate New York. That dish featured shrimp and lobster in a creamy shellfish-based stock, with the classic succotash vegetables of lima beans and corn.

“Succotash” is derived from the Native American Narragansett word, msikwatash, which means “bounty,” and originally consisted of lima beans (butter beans) and maize (corn) and often pieces of cured meat or fish. The dish later became very popular during the Great Depression in the 1930s and was sometimes cooked as a casserole, often with a light pie crust similar to a pot pie.

A new take on tradition

In some areas of the South, any mixture of vegetables prepared with lima beans and topped with lard or butter came to be called succotash. But succotash is better known as a traditional dish in many Thanksgiving celebrations in Pennsylvania and neighboring states. In Indiana, for example, succotash is made with green beans and corn, instead of lima beans.

Those culinary traditions influenced the Bold Eats version of succotash, which combines Native American and Mexican cuisines with a modern flair, using corn, green beans, tomatoes, bell peppers and onions.

To that flavorful mixture we added marinated all white-meat chicken and a wonderfully spicy Chorizo sausage, a Spanish-Latin American specialty made with pork, chilies, paprika and garlic. Chorizo is sometimes made with “offal” meats (such as tripe and organ meats) and added fat, but ours uses only top-quality lean pork and smoked bacon to complement the fresh chilies and spices.

Enjoy our Chicken and Chorizo Succotash, and savor the flavor of a modern twist on an ancient culinary tradition. Only from Bold Eats.
