A few weeks ago I shared with you my recipe for chorizo and pesto scones and since then I've been looking for more ways to use some of those ingredients. Chorizo is one of those foods I can forget about completely for months at a time but then when I remember it again I just want to use it in everything - does anyone else get obsessed with singular ingredients or is it just me? Anyway, this recipe was another that came from just guessing at things when we wanted something a little different to eat for dinner but that came out so well I just had to share it with you.
It's incredibly warming and comforting which is great now to weather is starting to turn and would make a perfect side dish or starter for entertaining friends in a more casual setting like a barbecue or as a snack for a cosy movie night. It's also really easy and fairly quick in the sense that most of the cooking time is just baking so you can get on with other things - a definite winner.
(serves 4 as a side or 2 as a main)
150g finely diced chorizo
1 large pepper, finely chopped
1 large potato, cubed
1/2 onion, diced
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon coriander
A pinch of salt
1 packet of tortilla chips (to serve)
Start by bringing a saucepan of salted water to boil and then adding in your potato, boil for about 10 minutes or until soft then drain and set aside.
In a large frying pan, gently fry the onion then add the peppers and chorizo and heat for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the seasonings and potato cubes and warm through for a further couple of minutes before transferring to a large dish.
Bake at 200C for around half an hour and serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
