Depending on your heat preference. Of course our Caribbean or Chipotle goes good as well.



1. Heat oil in a large pot on medium heat. Add onion and bell peppers; cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften.

2. Stir in tomatoes, water, garlic, chorizo sausage, sweet potato, quinoa, rice and Fire Belly. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 45 minutes.

3. Stir in shrimp. Cover and cook 5 minutes longer or just until shrimp turn pink and rice and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes.

  • I always try to add things to my recipes that are really beneficial for us but we don’t necessarily eat often. The benefits of turmeric are unquestionable; I will have a blog about this at a later date, however it is a bit bitter. Lemon grass has a great flavour just take it out when you’re finished. Taro root if you can find it has a great flavour and also very beneficial.

A simple dish, but ohhh so yummy!
