Saute the chicken and chorizo for 6 minutes until well sealed. Remove from the pan and pop to one side. In the same pan gently saute the onions and peppers for 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the red wine, bring to the boil and reduce so it becomes sticky. Add the tomatoes and tomato puree. Add all the spices and some seasoning and cook for a further 3 minutes. Add the stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Mix the sliced sweet potatoes with the oregano, garlic salt, black pepper and rapeseed oil. Add the chicken and chorizo back in and pour the entire mix into a casserole dish. Arrange the sliced potato over the top. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until the potatoes are crispy and cooked through. Serve with some freshly squeezed lime.
