Let’s Get Started

  • Prep Time: 15 mins

  • Cook Time: 20 mins

  • Makes: 7 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 oz) El Popular “Original” Chorizo

  • 1½ lbs red potatoes (cut into small cubes to make about 4 cups)

  • ¾ cup mayo

  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

  • 2 tsp granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced

  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced

  • ½ medium green pepper, finely diced

Directions

  • Boil the potatoes until they are fork-tender. Drain the potatoes and set them all aside.

  • Remove casing from Chorizo, and place in a medium skillet. Cook for 4-5 min until brown. Remove Chorizo from pan and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off all but 2 tbsps of the Chorizo drippings into the skillet and remove the pan from heat.

  • Add the mayo, mustard, sugar and salt to the reserved Chorizo drippings in the skillet and whisk to combine.

  • In a large bowl, combine potatoes, eggs, celery, onion and green pepper. Pour the dressing over the ingredients and gently stir to evenly coat. Stir in the Chorizo.

  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Leftovers can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Chorizo 101

  • Chorizo is a spicy sausage believed to have come from Ancient Rome and later adopted by the Spaniards who brought it to Mexico.

  • Unlike Spanish Chorizo — Mexican style is soft, raw, uncured, and uncooked.

  • Similar to how Americans view bacon, Chorizo is a versatile ingredient one can use to enhance any dish!

Directions

  • Remove casing from Chorizo links.

  • Place desired amount in a non-stick skillet.

  • Break-up Chorizo while cooking at medium heat.

  • Sauté for 7-8 minutes until the Chorizo is fully cooked or the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees (F).

  • Enjoy on or in any dish.
