    Why would you bother going through the slow-cooker routine? You've cooked the sausages, the beans and tomatoes come out of a tin, what's to cook for 3 hours? And 4 stock cubes?? Way too many.

    20-30 minutes in a covered frying pan would give you much the same result.

    Rather agree with Jennome. This is a simple bachelor meal I taught my husband. Just half fry some chorizo sausages in a large frypan and then add a can of beans and a can of tomatoes. Then cook for another 10 minutes or so over a moderate to low heat uncovered until heated through and any excess liquid reduced. He loves it and nothing could be more simple.

    ECLAIR - Like your version better than the one above. As JENNOME stated, why 4 stock cubes? Too salty. There is enough salt in the can of Tomatoes and Baked Beans and Tomato Paste. No good for people with high blood pressure.

    Doesn't specify amount of chilli powder or when to add it, and obviously the chilli will make a great deal of difference to the dish as described above.
