Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 piece ginger, chopped
  • 1 handful fresh mint
  • 1 handful fresh coriander
  • 1 dash oil
  • 5 chorizo sausages, cooked, casings removed
  • 1 can red kidney beans, drained

  • 1 handful fresh coriander
  • 1 handful spring onion

Method

  1. In the food processor chop 1 onion with garlic, green chillies, ginger and fresh mint and coriander leaves, then cook the mixture gently in hot oil (don’t allow it to brown).
  2. Peel the casings off chorizo sausages and crumble the sausage into the onion mixture. 
  3. Add red kidney beans, tomatoes, beer, cumin, turmeric, coriander, bay leaves and star anise.
