  • 2 Chorizo

In This Recipe


  1. Chop an onion. Any size you like ( fine or chunky) and slice the chorizo.
  2. Heat a saucepan on top of the stove, add olive oil and fry the onion until translucent. Don't have the heat too high .
  3. Add sliced chorizo and fry till it gets browned a little.
  4. Add the tin of tomatoes and the chick peas ( after draining ).. Give it a stir while adding in the basil and oregano. Using chopped tomatoes reduces cooking time.
  5. Cover and Let it simmer away while you do something else for about 15-30 minutes. It can cook longer without any problems.
  6. Serve with whatever you fancy. Works well with cous cous or warm Turkish or naan bread. Fresh coriander ( cilantro) sprinkled over the top is also nice.

This is, just as Emartin said, fast and easy. And tasty! And substitutable. Use whatever cured meat you have on hand and the spice combo that takes your fancy. In my case, it was some ham/bacon stuff they have here in Portugal and cumin+ras el hanout. Thank you!
