Directions

  • Wash the potatoes well, then place in a large sauce pot and cover with water. Place a lid on the pot and bring it up to a boil over high heat.

  • Boil the potatoes just until they are tender enough to pierce with a fork (about 7-10 min). Drain the potatoes and let them cool slightly.

  • While potatoes are boiling, cook the chorizo. Remove the chorizo from casing, and heat over medium heat. Breakup and cook evenly for 4 minutes. Add in the onion (and the nopales, if desired), sautéing together with the chorizo. After onions are translucent, remove chorizo/onion mixture and place in a separate bowl.

  • Dice the boiled potatoes into 1/4-inch cubes, and add into skillet along with some cooking oil to prevent burning. Cook the potatoes in the hot oil, stirring only occasionally, until the potatoes are brown and crispy (about 10 minutes). Avoid stirring too often as this will prevent the potatoes from forming a brown crisp finish.

  • Add the chorizo and onions in with the potatoes, and stir together.

  • Serve and enjoy!
