Papas con Chorizo (Mexican Chorizo and Potatoes)

Rating: 5 stars 5
The bold, delicious flavors of this traditional Mexican chorizo and potato recipe are sure to become your new favorite breakfast. Top with a fried or poached egg, or serve inside corn tortillas. I like to top mine with Cotija cheese, cilantro, hot sauce, and a side of avocado. Home- or store-made chorizo is best; however, feel free to use your favorite brand.

Breakfast Baked Potato

I came up with this idea one morning when my son wanted hash browns, but I didn't want to do all the chopping and such. So, I just baked a potato and stuffed all the other breakfast items inside. He loved it and is now making it on his own! And there are many options with this dish.

Potato Waffles

Here's a quick and delicious way to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. You WILL need a waffle iron. These are basically potato pancakes (a.k.a. latkes) but without all the greasy clean-up and calories from pan-frying. I usually serve them with fish or chicken and sauteed apples.
