You would never guess that this recipe uses canned beans. Don't skip the chorizo as it adds a lovely bottom note to the flavour of the dish. Muy facil!

I was really pleased with the results from this recipe, even though I didn't include every ingredient. I served these flavorful beans over rice, and it was delicious!
