Method

  1. Heat the olive or rapeseed oil in a large heavy-based pan. Add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the celery and peppers and cook for a further 5 mins.

  3. Pour in the wine and use a wooden spoon to remove any residue stuck to the pan. Add the tinned tomatoes, and fresh thyme and bring to a simmer. Crumble in the stock cube and stir in.

So simple and so tasty - used cannelini beans instead and no need for a side dish. Perfect Saturday night comfort food!

Really good recipe, filled up my hubby, son's & son's mate a treat. I also browned the sausages under the grill, & only used 250g of chorizo to 600g pork sausages but the combo was v good. It fed 5 of us with plenty left for tea for 2 tomorrow!

a little squidge of tomato ketchup sweetened it ever so slightly and about 1/2 tsp of sugar helped the tomatoes

Works well and very easy to make or adapt. All recipes like these freeze very well.
Leave a day or two if you, and it is even better!

Made this the other night and it was yummy. Used vegetarian sausages instead (Quorn's pork and apple style) and they worked very well. I changed the beans around as i didn't have aduki beans. But all the flavours worked together and made it very satisfying! Will be cooking this again

This went down a treat with all the family. Didn't use chorizo sausages and left out the wine. First time I have used smoked paprika and it made such a difference.

Doubled up sausages, wine and tomatoes - not much left over though!! Very popular with whole family. Need strong tasting veg with it though - I opted for cauliflower and broccoli and mash. Used mixed beams as if was what i had in the cupboard. Left out fresh thyme.
Delicious for winter, comfort food.

Just made this as as a winter warmer for a snowy Sunday lunch - it was really easy, ever so tasty and a huge hit! Served it with Yorkshire puds & a glass of red wine... Delish!

I fed four hungry growing girls this dish with mash and it went down wonderfully. A fabulous hearty winter-ish dish.

We loved this. I grilled the sausages first and did the rest in the pan, with the chorizo. Once it was all in I chucked the whole lot (inc sausages) into my slow cooker and left it there for a few hours. Dinner was delicious and we have some frozen for another time. Excellent.

This was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, & it made enough for 4 hungry people at the first sitting. We had lots of sauce left over which froze well, just cooked more pork sausages & reheated the sauce second time around. Had it with mash & jacket potatoes & a selection of veg. I will certainly be adding this to our regular menu.

This is an excellent recipe. I was cooking for someone with a few allergies, so left out the chorizo, onion, and wine, and added some cayenne pepper for a bit of heat. Lush! Lasted us a couple of days, and people kept trying to steal the leftovers. Simmered for quite a while so was a bit more like chilli in texture, and served with basmati rice.

I made this last night but had to alter the sausages for veggie ones. I used Quorn and cut them up diagonally. I used a little Cajcun seasoning and the smallest amount of chillie to make up for the chorizo. Used Veg stock and served this with some potato bread (peel, boil and mash the potato with a knob of butter and turn mash into dough with a cup of plain flour or adjust amount until the mash become dough and can be rolled and cut into squares- fry in a pan for couple of mins in each side). The family loved it.

full of flavour, easy to make, nutritious, excellent recipe. Don't worry if you think it is too runny or watery during cooking - the beans go in at the end which thickens it up.

"cooking chorizo sausages". What are they then? Is there a chorizo sausage one doesn't cook? Pardon my stupidity, I'm only a bloke.

Really nice recipe, my sausages were a bit anemic- think next time I'd pre-brown the sausages first and then add them according to the recipe. There will definitely be a next time!

I really like the sound of this recipe and want to make it for 8 friends next weekend. How many does this recipe serve? I can't seem to find it on the recipe page, but then I am new to GoodFood so maybe I've missed it! Any ideas pls?
