This is really simple, almost unbelievably so given the amount of flavour in the final dish.


Number of serving: 4
1 cup black beans

1/2 bulb fennel, roughly chopped

1/4 cup chorizo

1 small white onion, finely chopped

Salt, to taste

Corn tortillas or chips, to serve


  • Place the beans in a pot and cover with three cups of water. Bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer.
  • Add the fennel, chorizo and onion, partially cover and simmer over a low heat until the beans are tender (about 1.5 hours). Add more water if necessary.
  • Blend, season and serve with toasted corn tortillas or chips. We added some mozarella too which isn’t strictly authentic but it worked well.
