Chicken Chorizo Stew
It may not be pretty to look at, but it certainly is delicious. A great warm recipe for the colder weather. This dish comes out quite soupy so if you’re a fan of sauce, it’s perfect, if not, you can always scoop out the chunky ingredients with a straining ladle and adjust the sauce levels to your preference. If you like your meals hot, and not just the temperature, feel free to add some fresh chilies when you put in the capsicum.
One thing to help make preparation easier, I listed the ingredients in the order of use. The original recipe from the Thermomix Community Forum, included chickpeas (which were added with the capsicum and coriander in the last step). I was intending to do this but I forgot the chickpeas I had were not cooked. So I just skipped the chickpeas and had it with some pre-made rice and quinoa. Still delicious!
