Gluten and Dairy Free Chorizo, Chicken & Potato Stew

Hello

I love the beautiful flavours that you get in Spanish cooking from what is essential a pretty simplistic dish.  I’m lucky enough to have good friends in Spain and love all the traditional food they have that is naturally gluten and dairy free for me.

I’m a big fan of chorizo, like bacon, I think it makes everything taste that little bit better.  As always double check the ingredients for the chorizo as I have seen a few brands recently that contains milk.  I usually buy my chorizo from Tesco and it is safe for people avoiding both gluten and dairy.

Enjoy!
