Soak the beans overnight in cold water. Heat the olive oil in a heavy soup pot over moderate heat. Add the onions, garlic, and jalapeno. Cook over low heat until almost tender, then stir in the paprika, cumin, coriander, and bay leaf.
Add the stock or water. Drain the soaked beans and add them to the pot. Cover and simmer until the beans are just tender. Add the tomatoes. Continue to simmer until the beans are completely tender and the flavors are well blended, about 20 to 30 minutes. Add salt and hot pepper sauce, to taste. Carefully mix together the diced avocado, chorizo and tomato. Garnish each portion of the soup with a spoonful of this mixture.
