Chickpeas with tomatoes & chorizo

When I have plenty of time to cook and can plan well enough in advance, I use dried beans for my dishes because I like the taste and texture. But I also usually keep a can or two of chickpeas in my pantry for the times when I need a quick dish. They're versatile and can be made into hearty soups and stews.

Having lived in California, I find I miss tacos. I never grew tired of them because there was an extensive variety of fillings. I'd visit mobile food trucks and taquerias, ordering tacos stuffed with whatever each place specialised in: carnitas (rich, fatty braised pork), carne asada (seasoned seared beef), fried fish, chopped lengua (tongue) and cabeza (cow).

Ripe for the plucking

When I was growing up in Southern California, avocados were so common we rarely had to buy them: neighbours and friends would give us sackfuls from their trees. We'd eat them as snacks, with just a sprinkling of salt, or mash them into guacamole, add chunks into seafood salads, and top hamburgers with slices of the fruit.
