We had this dish when we went to Malaga a month ago and absolutely loved it. This dish has everything Jeff likes - a rustic dish with thick gravy, it's very flavourful and tasty. We bought back some chorizo and I thought I'll give this dish a go. I used a mix of chicken and pork to give it more flavour. Left out the fatty pork for health reasons. The chorizo gave out so much flavour to this dish that it doesn't require any additional seasonings. Really yummy!Andalucian stew @ Gorki, Malaga
