      A very creative recipe, and quite tasty. However, the chorizo dominates the flavor. I was looking forward to getting to taste chestnuts for the first time, but I'm still not sure what they taste like.

      Also, one thing I would change is the prep time. We started making this recipe at 6:50 p.m. and couldn't eat it until 8 p.m. We had just harvested the chestnuts from our tree, and it took about 30 minutes to score them, boil them and peel their shells off. Then it also takes a while to chop the garlic, onion and tomatoes. Definitely more effort than 25 minutes.
