3 or four can assorted chickpeas or beans, drained (I used chickpeas, butterbeans,flagelot and haricot this time
fry onions, carrots, celery, pancetta and chorizo over a medium heat until starting to brown. Use a large casserole.
meanwhile brown the sausages and chicken. once the sausages are browned chop them into rough quarters (this is easier than trying to chop them raw)
add sausage adn chicken to casserole. de glaze the frying pan with a spot of wine.
add peppers, garlic, chillies and smoked paprika and fry for about a minute.
add all remaining ingredients, stir, simmer for about forty minutes – you may need to check it for salt.
serve with crusty bread, or on its own, its also very nice warmed up with melted cheese on top
