Start by heating up a wide-bottomed pan over medium heat. Adding the chorizo and a generous splash of olive oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until some of the fat has rendered out nicely. Remove the chorizo. 

Add the minced onion and bell peppers and cook for 10 minutes over low heat while stirring until the sofrito is nicely coloured.

Add garlic and chilli. Sauté for 1-2 minutes. 

Add paprika and cayenne. Cook for 1-2 minutes. 

Add the tomato passata, the beans and the chorizo back to the pot and simmer until tender. Season to taste with red wine vinegar. 

When ready to serve, generously salt and sear the pork fillet over high heat until nicely browned. Finish in the oven for 3-4 minutes until the pork reaches an internal temperature of  60°C. 

Slice to 1.5cm thin slices and serve over the beans. Garnish with plenty of fresh herbs, sliced chili and quality extra virgin olive oil.
