I've had half a jar of adobo sauce in the fridge since the Westdean chili fiesta in the summer. I've used a little from time to time, even spread it on bread! but I thought it really should be used up now.

This was really a throw-together of 'fridge-forage', but it was so quick to cook and the picture so colourful, I thought it might give someone a little inspiration.

Chef's tip

Every now and then, we open four cans of different beans and pluses, add a cup of frozen peas to them and mix well, then freeze them in small plastic coffee cups for later use in recipes like this
