Chorizo and Green Bean Tapas

N often plays drums on a Tuesday night, which means he gets home and has to leave within about 15 mins so that he can make it to practice on time. In that time he needs to change out of his work clothes into his 'drum playing clothes' (a dodgy rude boy hoodie and some dated jeans!) and have a quick dinner. Luckily I get home before him so, being the wonderful wife I am, I make sure there is something ready for him to gulp down. Now to be fair, I only get home about 15-20 minutes before him so it has to be a pretty speedy dinner. Normally I make a quick pasta, a stir fry, or if things are seriosuly rushed he has to make do with poached egg on toast! Tonight, as I had some chorizo left over from a paella I made a few days back, I thought I try to conjure up a chorizo and green bean tapas style dish. It took just 15 minutes and tasted fantastic. So much so that I think it could definitely give Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meals a run for it's money!
