Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chorizo
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pound red potatoes, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional for serving: 2-3 green onions, salsa, avocado

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, brown the chorizo until it is cooked thoroughly. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked chorizo into a bowl. Leave any grease leftover from the chorizo in the skillet.
  2. Add the diced potatoes to the skillet and let cook until they’re cooked halfway through, about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally, scraping up any browned bits from the chorizo for flavor. Add the olive oil if more cooking oil is needed (if the potatoes are sticking to the pan).
  3. Once the potatoes are cooked halfway, add in all of the remaining vegetables and spices and stir to combine. Stir frequently, sautéing until the vegetables are fully cooked.
  4. Add the chorizo back into the skillet, stir to combine and let the chorizo heat back up in the skillet for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Serve with green onions, salsa, avocado/guacamole or an egg if desired.

Notes

  • You can also boil the potatoes until they are fork-tender (but not fully cooked), drain and set aside to cool. Then dice them and add them in with the onions and peppers in step 2. This is a good option if you want to prep the potatoes ahead of time, such as the night before, and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • You can substitute the potatoes for 1-1.5 cups of broccoli.
  • For a spicer breakfast skillet, add a 4 oz. can of diced green chiles in with the vegetables.
  • Keeps in the fridge for 4 days.
