Cheesy Potato Topped Beef and Chorizo Stew

I love the combination of beef, chorizo and red wine all together and so a few weeks ago I decided to write a recipe which would combine this delightful trio with some cheesy potato. The stew element of this dish works with slices of potato or mashed potato (options for cooking both are set out below and are the same amount of points). The stew is equally as delicious served on top of rice or with pasta. It’s a really versatile dish which is utterly delicious. Many people may think of stews as being a wintery dish, but I’ll eat something with chorizo and red wine in any day of the year!! You can add any greens you wish to the dish at the end if you fancy. I’ve served with green beans, broccoli or even a handful of mixed spring greens (steamed). All are lovely additions for 0sp.

Jerk Chicken Stew with Rice and Peas – 9sp

I’ve wanted to try something with a bit of jerk seasoning in for a while but I just haven’t had the time to make the marinade from scratch! I came across Schwarz’ seasoning last time I was at the supermarket so I thought I would see if I could create something fast but different with it in the meantime. Don’t get me wrong, this is by no means an ‘authentic’ Jamaican jerk recipe but it’s a nice alternative when you just fancy a taste of something new.
