  1. Fry the chorizo in a heavy pot or flameproof casserole dish over a medium heat for about 5 minutes until some of the fat is released and the chorizo is slightly crispy.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chorizo to a bowl, leaving the flavoured oil in the pot. This will add flavour to the soup with no need to add any extra oil.
  3. Return the pot to the heat and add the beef. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until evenly browned.
  4. Return the chorizo to the pot with the tomatoes and their juice, peppers and water. Bring to a boil, then stir in the lima beans, corn, oregano and paprika.
  5. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes until the beef is tender.
  6. Season to taste and serve scattered with parsley.
