Our dish for today was quite an impromptu one as it was Friday and our pantry was running low, we usually go for grocery on Saturdays. Luckily, I have some ingredients that I know can make a really good dish and most of it was mostly common pantry items, a dish with a Spanish flair. I love those flavours, maybe because the Filipino cuisine is influenced heavily by the Spanish so today we will be making some Chorizo, Pork Belly and Chickpeas which is prepared together in a casserole with herbs and spices like fennel seeds, onions, garlic, thyme, bay leaves and tomatoes, a simple dish to make yet the flavours are amazing.

Onions, tomatoes and garlic are such a wonderful yet simple flavours to impart to any dish then add some additional Spanish flavours like Chorizo and paprika then it will be a sure-fire winner like our dish today.
