Prep Time 4 hours
Cook Time 10 minutes
Serves 4


Strained Yoghurt

1. First strain your strained yoghurt. – not sure this makes sense? I would remove and start with step 2.
2. Mix the yoghurt and salt together.
3. Line a sieve with muslin and rest over a deep bowl, with enough in the base of the bowl so that the whey can drip out and not be in contact with the sieve.
4. Spoon in the yoghurt and place in the fridge to strain for about 4 hours.
5. After four hours, turn the strained yoghurt out into a bowl.
6. Add a tbsp of the olive oil and gently fold it through.

Crispy Chorizo

1. Heat the remaining half tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat.
2. Fry the chorizo until crispy.
3. Pour it on top of your strained yoghurt.
4. Garnish with nocelara olives and serve with Manchego and Green Olive tortilla chips.
