3. Roughly dice chorizo and add to pan.

4. Finely dice an onion and combine with chorizo in the pan.

5. Once the onions are starting to colour, add in the finely diced (or crushed) garlic (don’t add before this because garlic burns very easily!)

6. Add a splash of balsamic, cook for 30s to remove the acidity, then add a tsp of chipotle paste, cook for a further 30s.

7. Add the chopped tomatoes, basil and a few chilli flakes.

8. Stir all the ingredients in, taste and add balsamic/basil/salt/pepper etc to taste.
