A bit of chorizo sausage gives these beans a sassy hit of smoke and spice. Serve them as is (on small plates) or heaped onto slices of garlic-rubbed toast.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare up to 2 days in advance. Bring to room temperature or reheat on medium-low heat before serving.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
3 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2   medium carrots, minced
1   large red onion, peeled and minced
1 1/2 tablespoons  minced fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon  crushed red pepper
3 ounces  reduced-fat Spanish-style chorizo, finely diced (see Tip)
3 10-ounce packages  frozen baby lima beans
1 cup  dry white wine
1/2 cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 cloves  garlic, minced
1 tablespoon  sherry vinegar
1/2 teaspoon  kosher salt

Tip: Spanish-style chorizo is a seasoned, smoked pork sausage commonly used in tapas dishes, but it's rather high in fat. There is also a Mexican style of chorizo, typically uncooked; the Spanish chorizo is fully cooked. If you can't find reduced-fat chorizo but still want to keep the fat in check, use just 1 ounce of full-fat chorizo in this recipe.

DIRECTIONS
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add carrots, onion, thyme and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in chorizo and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes more. Add lima beans, wine, broth and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, scraping up any browned bits. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar and salt. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving.
