Chorizo, Garlic and Chillies Scones

It was so windy, cold and rainny outside and there was no way I would go to the supermarket. So I started seeing what foods I had in the house. Nothing fresh so I decided to use up the piece of chorizo I had.
I looked around and found flour and had the idea of making those. An experiment that I swear was the best improvisation on my menu, so far.

You will wow yourself and your guests with this easy and quick recipe.

Read it before you start cooking this please.

You will need:

125g self raising flour
55g unsalted butter
1 teaspoon of baking powder
enough milk to bind the flour together but not soak it
15 cm of chorizo cut in 1cm cubes
4 cloves of chopped garlic {I used my pestle and mortar and did not take skins off}
1 tablespoon of thai chillies {also a mortar job and you can use as much as you want}
2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
salt /pepper
1 mixed egg for brushing the scones

Preheat the oven at 180 Celsius.

Sauté the chorizo until it releases the oil but do not crisp it up and add your garlic and chillies letting it become very aromatic and turn it off as you do not want to overcook the garlic, just release the flavours. Let it sit for a couple of minutes, cooling.

In a bowl, mix the flour, butter and baking powder until all mixed like a crumble mix. Add the chorizo mix, now a little cooler, the parsley, a wee pinch of salt and pepper.
Mix a little and add your milk, a little at the time.
Remember that you will not over mix this or else it will become chewy. So you just want to bind it all together.

Flour a surface and pour mix on top of flour. Form a dough and cut in 6 about 2 cm high each.

Spread butter on a tray and place the scones slightly away from each other. Brush with egg mixture and bake for 12/15 minutes until golden on top.

Best eaten Hot/Warm!!!
