Tasty and simple...husband loves Chorizo too. I made my own chilli sauce which was easy enough and froze half for when I make it again! :)

I made this with 150g of chorizo purely because I like it, was lovely and split three ways with ease and it was still a very large portion. Is definitely something I would make again.

perfect quick supper, and even quicker if you have it with cous cous rather than rice!

So quick and hassle free. Made this for some friends coming round to dinner, and they loved it. I couldnt find fresh tomato and chilli sauce, so used normal tomato sauce with a little chilli powder and some chopped fresh chillies for an extra kick. Will definitaly make again, or some variation!

How funny to see this come up. I have made this for years. I just use tinned tomatoes, chopped peppers, a little chicken stock, cumin, smoked paprika and chilli for the sauce. yum. It is very yummy and much healthier then mince chilli.

This is very delicious although I do find that the chickpeas need cooking out a bit longer. I have done it a few times and if I only leave it for the time required they are slightly harder than I would like, so I leave them a little bit longer so they are softer. Lovely with a sweet potato and a dollop of sour cream.

Couldn't find a can of chickpeas but used a can of butter beans instead and I thought it was still great. Made my own tomato sauce using the above reviewers advice and I'll stick to this in future.

Very tasty and was well received. I also used chopped tomatoes and added chilli flakes and a little garlic. We had it with pasta instead of rice or potatoes.

Made this for dinner tonight as I wanted something quick and easy and not a take-away!
Changed it a bit - used black-eyed beans as we like those best, and added red onion & green pepper. I had no chilli pasta sauce so whizzed up a tin of tomatoes and added some dried chilli flakes.
But all that apart, it was really tasty and we loved it. Served it with rice and a rocket salad. Will make it again.

Very easy and tasty. Instead of pre bought tomato and chilli sauce I used a tin of tomatoes, chilli powder, cumin and paprika. I simply served it with a salad; if you don't have any natural yoghurt you can use (extra low fat!) mayo.

Needed something quick with ingredients I had, and made tomato chilli sauce freshly. Just about to eat it - tastes delicious, great idea

I followed this recipe exactly the first time and thought it was OK. I made it again recently and changed a few bits, for example used just chopped tomatoes and added some spices, added a bit of garlic, a pepper and half a red onion, plus used a can of mixed beans and a can of chick peas together. Only embellishing the recipe but makes it really yummy and it's so quick to make!
