This is a very common breakfast in Mexico. Just grab a tortilla, fill it with papas con chorizo, top it with salsa and or avocado and breakfast is ready! Scramble some eggs in your skillet along with the chorizo mixture and now you have huevos con papas y chorizo.

  • Melt bacon grease in the same skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add diced potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add diced onion and serrano pepper and continue cooking and stirring until potatoes are fork-tender, onion is translucent, and serrano pepper is soft, 2 to 6 more minutes. Add chorizo back into skillet and stir until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

Oil or lard can be used in place of bacon grease.

I added an extra serrano because we like spice. I tend to disagree with another reviewer that states chorizo is spicy on its own. It has a little bit of a kick but chorizo is not spicy. I guess it just depends on everyones taste level of spiciness. We loved it and so did my children who are 9 and 11. And they did not think it was spicy. Read More

I liked this similar to how I make it, nice and spicy, I either use corn or flour tortillas and make a taco or use pieces from the tortillas to scoop up the food. The toppings are also similar along with the salsa. Thanks Read More

You forgot to add the corn tortillas to the recipe ingredients list. I have made this recipe before without the chili peppers! The chorizo is spicy enough it doesn't need any more heat unless you like it very spicy! Read More
