Yield : 8-10

Gluten free


Olive oil

1-2 chorizo sausage, spicy or sweet

1 lb chicken breast, cut up into bite size pieces

1 lb ham, cut into bite size pieces

1 large onion or ½ of a Spanish onion

2 (in total) red, yellow or green pepper

1 jalapeno

2 stalks celery

1 ½ lb. Italian tomatoes, diced

4 cups chicken or vegetable stock

1 tbsp. salt

1 tsp. ground black pepper

1 tbsp. smoked paprika (any paprika will do)

3 15-oz. can white beans or mixed beans (Proper term is “pulses”, learn something new every day!)

2 bay leaves

Drizzle olive oil into a large Dutch oven and add the chorizo. Let the chorizo cook and color the oil, add chicken, cook 5 minutes, add the ham and cook another 5 minutes. In the meantime, dice the veggies approximately the same size.

Add to pot, stir around and let it cook 10 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer on stove top for 45 minutes on medium low heat, or in the oven for 45 minutes also.

Serve with my delicious cheese bread or naan bread, tortilla chips work really well too, kids seem to prefer that. Bon appétit!
