  1. Fry chorizo in pan over a medium heat for 1 minute
  2. Add the peppers and fry for 1 minute until softened
  3. Meanwhile, blend the tomatoes and chipotles
  4. Add tomatoes to the pan and cook for a couple of minutes until the sauce thickens

  • To make this vegetarian, replace the chorizo with a soya sausage or your favourite vegetable (aubergine is a good option)
  • The chipotle is optional, you can add more or less if you prefer
  • You could use Spanish chorizo instead of Mexican
