This is a perfect one pan dish that is a nutritional powerhouse. It is packed with protein, fibre and antioxidants, and is also a great source of B vitamins and minerals too. The mixture of beans not only make it a hearty dish but the chorizo gives it a delicious distinct flavour and adds a slight kick to it too. It is so quick and easy to make that the most difficult thing is deciding whether you want to serve it on it's own in a bowl or over sourdough toast and topped with an egg!
