This dish is for those nights when you’d rather order takeout but want something a little more substantial than a Big Mac. Maybe even something with a little kick to it. Inspired by Aslan’s dinner on essiebuttonvlogs (he’s a pro at video editing!), this dish is filling, savory and pretty quick to put together.

What you’ll need:

  • Can of chickpeas
  • half a log of chorizo
  • eggs
  • garlic (as much as you want)
  • tomato sauce
  • chicken broth
  • whatever vegetables you have lying around


The first thing to do is saute the garlic and chickpeas in a deep pan just until the garlic is fragrant. Next, put in about 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup of chicken broth. Add about 1/3 cup of water. Stir and let it reduce until the chickpeas are just coated with the sauce.

In another pan, cook the chorizo until (as my BF so astutely describes) “it looks like dog food”. Add in eggs. I wanted a more subtle chorizo flavor so I added 2 eggs. Stir until it looks like scrambled eggs/chorizo.

Once all of that’s ready, serve the chickpeas and top it off with the chorizo. It may not look sexy but, trust me, it is so good!
