Papas con Chorizo (Potatoes with Chorizo)

When you're having a party in Mexico, it is common to have a "taquiza", where we serve different traditional Mexican dishes in a buffet, so every guest can pick what they want to eat! The common characteristic between all these dishes is that all of them are an excellent filling for tacos! When invited to one of these parties, you will find mole, cochinita, tinga, chicharron (green and red sauce), beans, rice, and papas con chorizo.


  • 3 potatoes (any kind), peeled and cubed

  • 8 oz pork chorizo sausage

  • ½ onion, finely diced

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced

  • Canola oil

  • Salt to taste

  • Cielito Mio Gourmet Salsa with Dried Chiles


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cubed potatoes and cook for 5-10 minutes or until they are mostly cooked through. Drain and reserve.

  • Meanwhile, add the chorizo to a skillet and brown it over medium heat, approx. 8-10 minutes. Once browned set aside.

  • In the same pan, soften the onion (you can get rid of some of the chorizo fat). Once softened, add minced garlic and briefly sauté.

  • Add drained potatoes to the pan. Sauté for a few minutes and then add the cooked chorizo. Season to taste.

  • Serve as is or serve as a taco on top of warm corn tortillas. Add Cielito Mio Gourmet Salsa with Dried Chiles on top.


  • You can find Mexican chorizo in Mexican markets, to have an authentic Mexican flavor.
