We absolutely love this quick and easy chorizo and chickpea stew. It has just a handful of ingredients and loads of flavor. 

This recipe has a lovely tomato-based broth and a nice kick of flavor from the chorizo. The hearty chickpeas add fiber and a great texture to this dish.

Chickpeas and chorizo are amazing served with anything: over rice, pasta, couscous, bulgur, quinoa, or on its own with a nice crusty piece of sourdough bread for soaking up all the delicious juices.
