I am a big fan of chorizo so this is right up my alley.  I would have thought that the chorizo would have been a complete no no where Weight Watchers is concerned but this recipe is pretty okay in terms of points. As always I made a few changes, this is my version below.

Serves 4

5 1/2 points value per serving


500g (1lb 2 oz) new potatoes, halved or quartered if large

low fat cooking spray

200g (7 oz) chorizo, cubed

1 large yellow pepper, de-seeded and sliced

1 onion, sliced

6 tablespoons canned chick peas, drained

400g cherry tomatoes, halved

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

250 ml of stock

1 clove garlic

3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, to garnish


1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, heat a large non stick wok or frying pan and spray with the cooking spray. Add the peppers and onions and fry for 2 minutes.  Add the chorizo and fry for another 2 minutes. Stirring until it starts to crisp.

3. Add in the garlic and fry for another minute. Then add the chick peas, potatoes, and tomatoes. Stir in some of the stock and simmer until the liquid has reduced, then add the remainder and repeat.

4. Season to taste and serve in shallow bowls sprinkled with the parsley.

For an additional 2 points serve with 50g of crusty bread to mop up any of the juices.
