Something a little bit summery for you on the blog today, Chorizo & New Potato tarts.
These Cheese & Chutney Tartlets are definitely moreish (I’ve scoffed half a dozen sitting writing this post) and they’re perfect with Sweet Chilli & Tomato Chutney. Homemade chutney isn’t compulsory though just use your favourite.
