Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced dried chorizo sausage (6 oz/175 g)
  • 1 onion thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar or wine vinegar

Method

In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat; fry chorizo, onion, garlic, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 8 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes and vinegar; cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and tomatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
