Of all the free style cooking I made I guess this would easily go to the top of my favourite list. I never knew these three ingredients would blend really well together the creamy butter beans, spicy chorizo and mild squid perfectly matches and enhances each of their our flavour and texture characteristics. Serve it with rice or crusty bread and it becomes a complete and easy to prepare weekday dinner.

    Can’t wait to give this dish a taste!

  2. Free style cooking is exactly how it should be, from the heart! I need to find more creative ways to prepare calamari. Especially as it’s squidding season now and my sweetheart returned home with 3 of them once!

    I love the use of the butterbeans, it makes this a far more delicious version of this rustic type stew.

  3. I love anything that involves Chorizo, so this sounds phenomenal!

    Calmari? Chorizo? Butterbeans? Love all three, and have never combined them before. This looks stupendous — thanks so much.

    Calamari & Chorizo go together like chicken & avocado, but would never have thought to pop the butter beans into the mix. Brilliant idea really! Its a good substitute for pasta using the beans. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to introducing this recipe into my weekly dinners. 🙂
