Ingredients
  • 1tsp rapeseed oil
  • 50g chorizo, diced into small cubes
  • 50g frozen diced onions
  • 100g frozen sliced mixed peppers
  • ½tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • ½ x 400g tin Asda Chopped Tomatoes
  • 125g long grain rice, rinsed well under cold running water
  • ½ reduced-salt chicken stock cube, made up to 175ml with boiling water
  • 100g frozen peas
Method
  • Heat the oil in a casserole dish or wide pan with a lid, over a medium heat. Fry the chorizo cubes for 2 mins until starting to crisp. Add the diced onion and fry for another 2 mins, stirring frequently, until soft.

  • Add the peppers and fry for another 2-3 mins until tender, then sprinkle over the Cajun seasoning and some black pepper, and mix well.

  • Add the chopped tomatoes, rinsed rice and stock. Mix well, then bring to a simmer. Add the lid, lower the heat, and cook for 15-18 mins until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Don’t remove the lid until 15 mins have passed, as this will help steam the rice. Add a splash more water if all the stock has been absorbed but the rice has a little bite.

  • Season with black pepper and stir in the peas. Heat for another minute with the lid on, then turn off the heat and leave to steam and rest for 5 mins before fluffing up the rice and serving.
