Not just for pizzas and paella - check out these recipes with chorizo and add a Spanish flavour dimension to your breakfast or supper.
An easy to prepare slow cooked chicken and chorizo dish. Serve with rice. For the chorizo, don't use the pre-cut thin stuff - get an actual sausage!
An extremely easy take on a sausage and bean stew with a rich smoky flavour. If you prefer, you could use a can of chopped tomatoes and a can of mixed beans in water instead of the baked beans but I actually find the baked beans are tastier, not to mention quicker!
Chicken cooked in a spicy sauce with chorizo and prawns.
A creamy risotto with a spicy kick which is perfect for a weekday comforting meal or equally good dressed up for a dinner party served in posh bowls with a crisp salad on the side. Very tasty and simple to make.
The onset of winter nights has had me craving a good spicy stew. And for me it comes no better than a Spanish style stew - using pork shoulder steaks is a great alternative to loin, fillet or chops and they really take to stewing as a method of cooking. The simplicity of this dish is amazing.
Chicken rice in the oven - fast and inexpensive with a great end result!
A thick, spicy and warming stew for the coldest of winter evenings. Serve with bread, rice or couscous.
A very traditional paella with chorizo, chicken, peas, squid, mussels and prawns. The saffron and chorizo give this one-pan meal a gorgeous red hue. A paella pan is recommended.
I use my cataplana to cook this dish, however, you can achieve the same results in a casserole dish. Wonderful and warming stew made with pork, chorizo, tomato and butter beans. Serve with crusty bread to mop up the juices.
A little spicy chorizo goes a long way and adds a fabulous flavour to this colourful rice and vegetable dish. Camargue red rice is especially nutritious, with a higher fibre content even than brown rice, and a wonderful nutty texture.
