Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F - gas 4), [fan oven 160° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]


  1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven or flameproof casserole dish.
  2. Add a good grind of black pepper.
  3. Gently sauté the onion, and peppers for 5 minutes until soft.
  4. Add the chorizo and garlic and stir-fry for a minute or so.
  5. Stir in the rice and allow it to become well coated with the oil.
  6. Add the remaining ingredients, stir really well. Cover with a layer of tin foil, then add the lid. This makes a really good seal.

Serving suggestions

Serve with chopped fresh parsley


Use any vegetables you have to hand. Frozen sweetcorn, Frozen peas, kidney beans, chick peas, green beans, etc.

Frozen vegetables can be added frozen with the stock.

Chef's notes

Most commercial stock powders are quite salty, so you shouldn't need any extra salt.

Omit the chorizo and use vegetable stock and this makes a nice vegetarian recipe.
