Sometimes it feels like breakfast needs a little change up and these Chorizo breakfast potatoes are a simple and tasty way to change it up. Chorizo is a flavorful way to spice up dishes.
Hello Friends! Today I wanted to share a delicious side dish that has been a staple in our family forever. These chorizo and potatoes are a wonderful way to change up breakfast. My mother used to make these a lot when I was a kid.
This Chorizo and Potato recipe is one we make often and usually on the weekends. It is perfect as a side dish or with a fried egg on top. It also makes a great skillet breakfast base. It is made with just a few ingredients too!
List of main ingredients:
Potatoes – I love the taste and consistency I get with Russet Potatoes. These are always the type of potatoe I choose.My second choice would be Yukon Gold.
Chorizo – For this recipe, you want to use Mexican Chorizo, not Spanish Chorizo. There is a big difference in that Mexican chorizo is softer and ground and uncooked – kind of like the consistency of ground beef. Spanish chorizo is a cured meat and is more like salami and while it is good for many dishes, I do not use it for this recipe. Note that there are two major types of Mexican Chorizo – beef and pork. I use beef chorizo, although you can use pork as well.
