1. Heat a large, deep pan with oil over medium-high heat. Dice and add onion and chorizo. Chop and add capsicum. Cook for a few minutes until onion has softened.

2. Add 2 tsp smoked paprika and crush in 2 garlic cloves. Pour in tomatoes, 1/2 tin water and drained beans. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

4. In the meantime, chop chives, slice avocado and remove corn kernels from cob (see notes).
