Mussels and Chorizo


Really special meal that is easy to prepare. Make sure to use Spanish chorizo.

Mussels and Chorizo


1 Tbsp. olive oil

½ red bell pepper, finely chopped

½ onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 thyme sprig

1 14 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained

¼ lb. chorizo, chopped

1 lbs. mussels

½ cup white wine



Warm the olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add bell pepper, onion, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Turn the mussels into the pot, pour in the wine, increase the heat to high and stir the mussels. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Check mussels and continue to cook until all are opened. Once all mussels are opened, serve mussels immediately.
