  • 1.5 Pound potatoes about 3 red potatoes, peeled and cut into ½ –in cubes
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil or more as needed
  • 10 oz Mexican chorizo remove the casings
  • Cup white onion finely diced (optional)
  • Salt


  • Warm corn or flour tortillas to serve.
  • A spicy salsa or fresh Serrano pepper finely chopped.


  • Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Once the water comes to boil, cook the potatoes at medium heat for about 8 -10 minutes. The potatoes do not need to be thoroughly cooked, just tender. They will finish cooking in the frying pan with the chorizo later on. Drain the potatoes using a strainer and reserve.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, heat the oil in a frying pan at medium heat. Remove the casing from the chorizo, crumble it and add to the frying pan to cook. Stir often to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pan, and it releases the tasty fat. This step will take about 8 minutes.
  • Stir in potatoes and the onion (if using) and combine to allow all the chorizo flavors to coat the potatoes. Add more oil if need, to finish to cook the potatoes and to avoid them from sticking to the pan. Season your Chorizo con papas with salt.
