    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Rehydrate the two dried red chillies in a pan of boiling water for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the water and allow to cool until needed.
    2. Meanwhile, heat a generous amount of olive oil in a casserole dish or saucepan. Add the green capsicum, onions and leeks, then cook until soft and translucent.
    3. Add the head of garlic and the red chilli. Stir and cook for a minute then add the chorizo, potatoes, salt and water to cover.
    4. Simmer until the potatoes are soft, about 25 minutes (or 5 minutes under pressure in a pressure cooker). Remove the garlic and dried chilli. Discard the dried chilli, but reserve the garlic.
    5. Open the red chillies and scrape out the flesh. Remove 3 cloves from the head of garlic. Make a paste with the red chilli and garlic, mashing with a fork. Add this paste to the stew and cook for a further 5 minutes.
