Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil (or oil from the sundried tomatoes)
  • 150g frozen chopped onion (or 1 large onion, chopped)
  • 350g frozen sliced mixed peppers (or use 3 mixed peppers)
  • 6 mini cooking chorizos
  • 6 sundried tomatoes
  • 3 tsp garlic paste (or use 4 garlic cloves, crushed)
  • 1 x 400g tin cherry tomatoes
For the cornbread crust
  • 125g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 125g fine cornmeal or polenta
  • 1 green chilli, diced
  • 1 bunch spring onions, chopped
  • 115g butter, melted
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • 250ml buttermilk (or use 200ml yogurt plus 50ml milk)
  • 120g grated mature cheddar cheese

Step by step

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas 5. For the filling, heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion and peppers over a high heat for 5-6 minutes while you quarter the mini chorizo and roughly chop the sundried tomatoes. Add the garlic and chorizo to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, tossing everything together well.
  2. Tip the tin of tomatoes into the pan, half-fill the tin with water to rinse it and add this to the pan with the sundried tomatoes. Cook briskly for a further 5 minutes until the mixture has thickened then tip into a large ovenproof baking dish (about 25cm x 30cm across the base) and spread the mixture out evenly. Place on a baking tray.
  3. Meanwhile, for the cornbread crust mix the flour, baking powder, cornmeal, chilli, spring onions and a generous pinch of salt in a large bowl. Combine the melted butter, eggs, buttermilk and cheese in a jug. Combine with the dry ingredients just before baking the pie. Spoon the cornbread mixture over the filling and bake for 25-30 minutes until puffed up and golden brown.
    Tip
    Go veggie and make a pepper and chilli bean cornbread pie: omit the chorizo from the filling, add 2 tsp smoked paprika, 1 tsp ground cumin and a pinch of chilli flakes instead,plus a tin of drained kidney beans, and double the quantity of sundried tomatoes.
