Sausage and pepper stew

Sausage and pepper stew

Bursting with flavour, this stunning yet simple recipe makes a fabulous brunch or lazy lunch dish. Serve with warm, crusty bread.

The most basic sausage consists of meat, cut into pieces or ground, and filled into a casing. The meat may be from any animal, but traditionally is pork, beef, or veal. The casing is traditionally made from animals’ intestines – sheeps’ intestines for small sausages such as chipolatas, pigs’ intestines and ox intestines for larger sausages. Today, however, natural casings are often replaced by collagen, cellulose, or even plastic casings, especially in the case of industrially manufactured sausages. Some forms of sausage, such as sliced sausage, are prepared without a casing.

Chicken pozole

Chicken pozole

Pozole is a traditional soup or stew of Mexico, from pre-Columbian days. The name is derived from the Nahuatl “potzolli” and the stew is made with hominy and pork or chicken. This particular version of Arturo’s is made with chicken, and is called “pozole blanco” in his native state of Guerrero, Mexico, where pozole is practically the state dish. While in New Mexico posole is traditionally served on Christmas eve, in Guerrero it is served every Thursday and Saturday, all year long. Light and healthful, pozole is also a common Mexican cure for a hangover, ironic in that it is also traditionally enjoyed with mezcal.
