  • 1 ½ tbsp vegetable oil
  • 200g chorizo , chopped
  • 100g smoked bacon , chopped
  • 4 shallots , sliced
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

    Add the beans and the chillies, give it a good stir and cook for 2 mins so the beans are coated with the mixture.

    Add the rest of the ingredients, plus 100ml water and some seasoning, then give everything a good stir. Bring to the boil, then lower to a simmer and cook for 30 mins, stirring, until it’s thick. Once ready, remove the bay, thyme and chillies, then serve.
