  • Soft Spanish Chorizo
  • 1 red onion (finely sliced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1 red pepper (diced small)
  • Olive oil
  • 150ml red wine
  • 400g (1 tin) whole, peeled plum tomatoes
  • 225g (1 tin) white beans such a cannellini
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried chili


  1. Start by taking the skin off the chorizo sausage and then chop it into small cubes.

  2. Fry the chorizo in a little olive oil until it begins to release its own beautiful red oils into the pan. The meat should crumble until it resembles mince meat.

  3. Add the onion, garlic and red pepper to the pan and fry gently until soft and sweet. Add more olive oil if the onion begins to take on colour.

  4. Turn up the heat and pour in the glass of wine. Allow to reduce by a third and then turn the heat back down.

  5. Remove the tomatoes from the tin, retaining as much of the juice as possible. Squish each tomato between your fingers and then add to the pan.

  6. Stir in the paprika, chilli and then season with salt to taste. Cook over a low heat for ten minutes and then add the beans. Simmer gently for a further fifteen minutes or until the sauce is thick.

  7. Serve with crusty bread and a large glass of a Spanish red with lots of oomph. If you've enjoyed this recipe please visit my blog for more simple, seasonal food. Thanks.
