Stir fries and one pot dishes are quickly becoming a favorite of mine. It is easy to make, it is quick, delicious and easy to clean up after. In this stir fry, I use many ingredients that complement each other very well. I use spicy chorizo as the texture goes very well with the crunch of the chickpeas and the bell pepper. You can use any other sausage or protein of your choice. Onions provides the sweetness in contrast to the spiciness of the green chilies and red chili flakes. This dish can be prepared in about 15 minutes once the ingredients are assembled and it goes great with rice or flatbread.
