  1. Chop 1 onion, 2 carrots, 2 celery sticks, 1 yellow pepper and 75g chorizo. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large flameproof casserole or heavy-based pan and cook the vegetables and chorizo for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly browned. Add 400ml chicken stock, made with a stock cube, a 420g can baked beans, 40g chopped soft sun-dried tomatoes, 1 tsp dried thyme and 1 tsp paprika. Bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 13 minutes. Stir in a 350g packet or can frankfurter sausages, drained and cut into bite-sized pieces and return to the boil. Simmer for 2 minutes. Combine 85g fresh white breadcrumbs with 1 tbsp chopped parsley and 1 tbsp oil in a bowl. If using a pan, transfer the bean mixture to a warmed ovenproof dish. Scatter the breadcrumbs over the top of the dish or casserole and pop under a hot grill for 4-5 minutes to crisp and brown before serving.

This was so simple to make and really tasty. I left out the celery as I don't like it, and used vegetable stock instead of chicken. I also left off the breadcrumb topping and just had it like a big stew. I would say it went down very well judging by the empty plates and being asked to make it again! - 24 Nov 2011


Used different ingredients. I used parsnip (chopped up into small cubes) just to use up one I had in the fridge, and sub'd cherry tomatoes for sun dried. - 18 Mar 2010


Made it vegetarian. Leave out the sausage and use a smoked tofu product, or a sausage sub like taifun's Wiener/Frankfurters. - 18 Mar 2010
