Easy and very very tasty. A successful supper dish. Served with baked potatoes and green beans. Will definitely use this recipe again.

A little disappointing having read the reviews. I doubled the paprika & cumin but still lacked a bit of umph. Also feel there was too much thyme giving it a bitter taste. Very rich in tomato. Too much for us. However, overall it was a satisfying & wholesome with dollops of creamy mash & freshly steamed broccoli. Would do again with major tweaks. I used half chorizo flavoured sausages & half traditional as that's the way I read cooking chorizo as being. In hindsight it does need real chorizo for that punchy flavour. 400g though?! That's an awful lot of money to spend don't you think? Not bad. Just not FAN DABBY DOSEY!

This recipe calls for sweet smoked paprika but I only had hot smoked paprika or sweet paprika, I opted for the hot smoked paprika and in hindsight maybe I should have gone for half of each as it had quite a kick to it! It was however, full of good flavour and really tasty served with just some mashed potato on the side. I did reduce it down for quite a while as my stock cubes were not the "crumbling" kind so I had to make up as stock and reduce down. I also added some extra peppers and a courgette that needed using up, omitted the celery as I didn't have any and changed the aduki beans for butterbeans as that was what was in the cupboard. Would definitely make this again but may make it less hot for those in the house who are a bit more sensitive to spicy food.

This is a great recipe! Very easy and the result was delicious! The type of recipe you can alter easily depending on what you have in the fridge. I added a few more different vegetables last time I made it. It is now a firm favourite in my house!

I've made a few sausage and bean stews in my time, but this had so much depth to the sauce it was delicious and my family loved it!

Just made this following the recipe to the letter with mash & it was nice. Next time I'll definitely brown the sausages first & would be lovely with broccoli as a side as well as mash.

Love this! I had it with roast potatoes which was delicious but would probably have mash next time to soak up the fantastic smokey paprika sauce. Would also leave out the chorizo to reduce the calories a bit.

Lovely comfort food, with scrummy flavour. Served with mash. Big portion and lots left over for lunch.

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.
