Potatoes with Chorizo

If you like Mexican food you are in for a treat today. I have one copy of the cookbook Muy Bueno to give away to one lucky blog reader. Muy Bueno is the recipe collection and collaborate work of my Denver blogger friend Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack, her sister Veronica Gonzalez-Smith, and their mother Evangelina Soza.

All three were born and raised in El Paso, Texas. They learned to cook from their grandmother and mother, Jesusita Mendias-Soza, whose hospitality and irresistible Mexican recipes were legendary among family and friends. They started the Muy Bueno Cookbook blog to celebrate and preserve their family’s special culinary heritage. The Muy Bueno cookbook brings to you a recipe collection of their family’s best Mexican comfort food.

Pinto Beans

I am featuring one recipe from the cookbook Muy Bueno for you today, potatoes with Mexican chorizo, which I served with pinto beans, some eggs, and a simple green salad as a tasty weeknight dinner the other day.

Potatoes and Mexican Chorizo
4.7 from 3 reviews
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Mexican
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 10
  • 5 Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cubed into ¼-inch cubes*
  • 2 Tablespoons kosher salt, divided
  • 10 ounces Mexican chorizo, casings removed
  • 1 cup shredded queso quesadilla cheese**
  1. Prehaet your oven to 350 F.
  2. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add 1½ Tablespoons of kosher salt and the cubed potatoes. Cook until the potatoes are tender. Drain and set aside.
  3. Crumble the chorizo into a casserole dish, cover with foil and bake in the oven until well done.
  4. Add the cooked potatoes to the chorizo dish and add ½ Tablespoon of salt. Mix gently until well combined.
  5. Top with shredded cheese and return the casserole dish back into the oven until the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve with tostadas, mini sopes, warm corn and flour tortillas, or fill into gorditas.
*Kirsten cooked the cubed potatoes with some olive oil, salt and pepper in a pan in the oven instead of boiling them. I think it adds a little more flavor. I also cooked my chorizo in a pan on the stove top and discharged the liquified fat from the chorizo. **Kirsten used organic sharp cheddar

Your potatoes sound delicious! I do a fair amount of Mexican cooking but not much with potatoes so this will be great to add to my repertoire, thanks!

Any recipe containing chorizo gets my attention and this dish sounds simple and delicious and your shot has my mouth watering – wish I had some chorizo in the freezer as I’d be laying it out for supple tonight and of course with an egg for breakfast tomorrow. Please exclude me from the cookbook draw.
