Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the oil, fry the chorizo for a few mins until slightly crisp, then scoop out, leaving the oil behind. Add the leeks and half the garlic; cook for 5 mins until soft. Pour in the sherry, beans and stock. Season, then bubble for 5 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, blitz the bread to coarse crumbs with the remaining garlic. Tip the leek mixture into an ovenproof dish, stir in the chorizo and scatter over the crumbs. Bake for 10 mins until golden, then serve with crusty bread.

Loved it! Will make again.

Very tasty. I used Blandys madeira as I didn't have any sherry. and I also added grated cheddar to the breadcrumb topping.

Absolutely yummy - making this for the second time but as greedy folk I put in extra chorizo too!

Well worth doing, the only addition I made was to add some Parmesan chesse in with the breadcrumb topping. Delicious!

We thought this was delicious - I used wholemeal bread for the crumb topping and a Knorr ham stock cube as I'd run out of the vegetable ones. Because my family love chorizo so much I added a little more than the recipe suggested (200g) and I am glad I did as I think the amount stated might not have been quite enough for the meat-loving men!

I added some Peppadew peppers for some extra spice and colour.
