Chickpeas and Chorizo Recipe

Cooking Method

Dice the chorizo into cubes no bigger than 1cm- smaller if possible.

Heat the oil in a heavy based frying pan over a medium heat then add the onion and garlic. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the onion is soft stirring occasionally and making sure that the garlic doesn’t burn. Add the chorizo and cook for 5-10 minutes until it is heated through.

Depending on whether you want to eat this dish hot or at room temperature follow one of the following two methods. I prefer it hot.

For room temperature pour the onion and chorizo mixture into a bowl and stir in the chickpeas and the red peppers. Pour in the wine vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper.

For hot mix the chickpeas and red peppers into the frying pan and leave it on the heat till everything is heated through. Then pour in the wine vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve with some crusty bread.
