The fantastic meal we concocted last week attracted so much attention, I thought I would share the recipe for this scrumptious meal!
1 can of Mixed Beans (in chilli sauce)
1 can of Butter Beans
1 can of Chopped Tomatoes
1 Pepper, diced (I used 1/2 a red pepper, 1/2 a yellow pepper)
1 Medium/Large onion
100g of Chorizo, cubed
1x Chicken Stock Cube
1 tsp Chilli Flakes
1 tsp Garlic Salt
Vegan/Vegetarian alternative - substitute the chorizo for a good amount of paprika and use vegetable stock instead of chicken.
Place the chorizo in a hot pan and seal until the chorizo is lightly toasted. Remove chorizo into a bowl for later. Fry the onions until soft and brown in chorizo juices with the garlic salt. Whilst the onions are frying, dissolve the stock cube in 200ml of boiled water.
Add both tins of beans to the frying pan along with the chorizo and chopped tomatoes. Cook for 2-4 minutes
Pour the stock cube over the beans and mix well. Cover with a lid and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove lid and simmer for a further 5-10 minutes.
Serve with fluffy rice or a jacket potato.
