The best spanish chef´s says, the best recipe are you use jus 3 to 5 ingridients, but with high quality....One of them is this, if you hide with much ingridiente a good product could be a waste the food.....The cook it´s simple, with no more 5 ingridients you can cook excelent dishes.

Great for winter. Can be varied a lot depending on which ingredients you have - garlic is a great idea ! Used caramelized red onion and pork sausages instead of chorizo.

Great recipe, nice and quick too. I didn't fancy cabbage but it worked very nicely with spinach and celery added a lovely crunch.

Lovely - followed other people's suggestion to add celery and pepper to make it even more filling and it was delicious. Makes a filling lunch on its own.

Very tasty and filling start to my 'Only having soup for dinner diet'! I added a little smoked paprika for an extra smokey flavour. Will definately be having this again but maybe with some differnt ingrediants next time.

As many others have said, this as an beautifully versatile dish. Those who think it's too bland have most likely used bland/cheapish chorizo. Gently frying it also improves the flavour - without you having to add the fat after frying. Just don't crisp the slices of chorizo too much as you still want some chewyness. This is also brilliant for quick meals for the army of friends who descend on you without notice.
