Ham hocks are a Southern favorite for flavoring soup, especially on a budget. If you can’t find any, you could substitute chopped salted pork, chopped smoked bacon or chopped smoked ham.
I prefer the black beans partially mashed after they have cooked. I think it gives more texture and creaminess to the soup, but you can skip that step if you prefer.
If you’d prefer to use regular chorizo, cook it in a medium pan and either stir it into the soup at the very end or serve the soup with the crumbled chorizo sprinkled on top.
