  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.
