    1. Heat a frypan and sauté the chorizo sausage for 3 minutes. Add the shallots, chilli, garlic and sauté for 3 additional minutes. Then add the tomatoes, capers, vinegar and parsley bringing them up to a boil, and turn down to a simmer for 3 more minutes. Stir through the baby spinach.

      The Airfryer idea is a fantastic machine for a quick, easy 2 person meal and plus cooking was much healthier. Thank you. Thank for sharing that Airfryer recipes

      Wow, I can not image how spanish baked egg can be cooked, especially the egg. How to cook it to our liking is not easy at all. With a stove I have to check so frequently to make sure that it should not be overcooked but with air fryer it seems to be perfect. It is better to serve the egg when it is over-easy then we can enjoy the yolk liquid with the rest. Many thanks for post.
