Chorizo has 25%* vitamin B-6 and 33% vitamin B-12, and white beans give you 20% magnesium, 40% manganese & 16% B-6.  The dried herbs and spices add B-6, manganese & vitamin E - so this dish helps if you have insomnia, exhaustion & dizziness or co-ordination issues.  It will also help depression & anxiety a bit too. *Percentages are of your Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA).
