Caramelised Pepper & Chorizo Tarts

Serves 6
Total Time
50 Minutes
2-3 tbsp of olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 sweet red peppers, deseeded and thinly sliced
500g of frozen Jus-Rol puff pastry, thawed
Plain flour, for rolling
100g of tomato chutney
75g of Manchego cheese, grated
12 thin chorizo slices, torn in half
2 tbsp of pine nuts
90g of rocket
2 tsp of balsamic vinegar
Step 1

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and gently cook the onion and peppers for 10-15 minutes until very soft and golden.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 220ºC, gas mark 7. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 36cm x 30cm rectangle and cut into six 18cm x 10cm rectangles. Transfer to two large baking sheets. Stir the chutney into the caramelised pepper mixture and spread over the pastry. Top with the cheese, chorizo and pine nuts and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

Step 3

Toss the rocket with the balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil and scatter over the tarts to serve.

Step 4

Cook’s tip: For a meat-free version, substitute the chorizo for semi-dried tomatoes. You can also make smaller tartlets for party nibbles – only cook for 10-15 minutes.
