It has been awhile since my last post as at times life gets in the way of blogging but it doesn’t stop me from making delicious recipes. I am glad to be back blogging with what I found to be a delicious and healthy recipe to share with you all. There is just something about smoked chorizo that gets my mouth watering and when you add protein and fiber rich chick peas to the dish it packs it with a tonne of flavour. You will need to use a large skillet for the meal and make sure that the beer you use is a pilsner but an ale will work almost as well. I went with a faster root for the chickpeas and just got them from a can, you will just need to wash them thoroughly before adding them to the dish. When it comes to the simmering of the recipe it depends how saucy you enjoy your meals but a longer simmer will reduce the liquid and make it sparse and thick which is the way I prefer this dish to be.
The chorizo I chose to use was spicy as this is my fav but for those with milder taste buds can chose a non spicy sausage.
