Mexican Chorizo with Potatoes

If you’re looking for a flavorful and hearty dish, Mexican Chorizo with Potatoes is a perfect choice. This traditional Mexican recipe combines the spicy, savory goodness of chorizo with the earthy taste of potatoes. It’s easy to prepare and makes for a satisfying meal any time of the day. Here’s how to make it:


  • 1 lb (450g) Mexican chorizo, casings removed
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (optional)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
  • Lime wedges (for serving)


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the diced potatoes. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until they are slightly tender but not fully cooked. Drain and set aside.
  2. Cook the Chorizo:
    • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chorizo and cook, breaking it up with a spatula, until it’s fully cooked and browned. This should take about 7-10 minutes. Transfer the cooked chorizo to a plate and set aside.
  3. Sauté the Vegetables:
    • In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the chopped onion, garlic, and bell pepper (if using). Sauté for about 5 minutes until the onion is translucent and the vegetables are softened.
  4. Combine Ingredients:
    • Add the partially cooked potatoes to the skillet with the vegetables. Stir to combine and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are fully cooked and crispy on the edges.
  5. Add Chorizo:
    • Return the cooked chorizo to the skillet and stir to combine with the potatoes and vegetables. Cook for an additional 5 minutes to heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve:
    • Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges on the side. This dish pairs well with warm tortillas or can be served as a standalone meal.
