We really enjoyed this- lots of flavour. It was quite simple and quick to prepare. I baked it all in the same skillet rather than 4 individual dishes. There are easily 6 servings or more here for a light lunch with a salad. Depending upon your choice of chorizo this can be as spicy as you like. Thanks! Made for ZWT3.
