Before I started SW I used to chop it into chunks, lightly fry the chorizo in olive oil, drain the excess oil (Chorizo has a lot) and then mix with a tin of baked beans. Not sure what the syn value would be, but it was one of my favourite meals.
oh thanks for the tips, im off to make it now so ill post how it goes, thanks for the syn value - i have 100g of it and looks lots, i was told it was very strong so only going to use 50g and add bacon to it yum yum
I used to make Jambalaya before SW but haven't since I started the plan as I assumed the syns for chorizo would be horrendous. It's not actually that bad I guess. My hubbie will be pleased - it was one of his favourite dinners!
i didnt follow a recipe as such, i kind of just made it up...
the syns arent worked out exactly either but ive worked it out to be around 6/7 syns per portion and this quantity serves 6 very generously
fry off 170g of chorizo chopped up, add chopped onions, 3 cloves of garlic, tspoon of paprika and diced chicken (i used 3 breasts and 5 thigh fillets) fry off til the chicken is cooked, add some chopped tomatoes, splash of worcester sauce, a slosh of white wine, some rosemary and bit of salt and pepper then let it simmer down until the sauce gets thicker
make your white sauce, i used milk as part of my HeA, butter which i synned and flour which i synned add a bit of white pepper
make up your lasagne in layers and top with parmesan (rest of HeA) put it in the oven for about half an hour til the cheese browns and the top goes crispy
