Method

Dry-fry the chorizo for a few mins in a non-stick frying pan until crisp. Carefully pour off any fat from the pan, then tip in the sauce and beans with 100ml water. Bring to a simmer, cover, then lower the heat and bubble for 10 mins. Spoon over rice and serve with yogurt.

Really easy, and very tasty for such a quick meal. I used a tin of mixed beans instead of two separate types, and added mushrooms and some chilli powder, because I prefer my chilli to be HOT! ;-)

This was a really easy to make meal with lots of flavour. I made my own tomato sauce with cherry tomatoes simmered, with chilli, tomoato puree and a bit of sugar.

Er, what was 'pants' about it? Maybe You didn't follow the recipe. I've yet to make it (have to improvise a bit, as Waitrose Chilli and Tomato sauce is unavailable here) but it got the "tested" flag, and I've never been disappointed by any meal that has this "Red Tick".
"Cingor"'s link (above yours looks like worth a try, but a) I have no idea how much a 'cup' is, and b) the recipe the article is about is for poor British students. Her linked-to-recipe seems to be for wealthy American ones ;-) 16 ingredients !!!

This is an excellent idea for a quick meal. I make up a version inspired by this recipe last night, using fresh peppers, tomato and mushrooms and a can of mixed beans in place of the kidney beans and chickpeas. So quick, very filling and tastes great!
