All Natural Chorizo and Potatoes

Why is it that men are so attached to meat and potatoes? I haven't answered that question, but this recipe will most certainly satisfy the men in your family. It is actually a modified creation of a meal my son, Brent, experienced while interning in London last summer. Thanks Eugene!
The rich, garlic flavor, tangy onions and spicy Chorizo combine with the potatoes and seasonings for a very flavorful, and budget-cutting dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of All-Natural Chorizo (I found it at Whole Foods Market)
  • 4-6 medium Organic Potatoes
  • 1 1/2-2 medium Organic Yellow Onions
  • 2 Tablespoons Organic Garlic Infused Oil (see my instructions below for preparing this yourself)
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Organic Garlic
  • 1-1 1/2 Teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 1/2 - 3/4 Teaspoon Organic Black Pepper

Instructions:

  1. To create your own garlic infused oil, start by mincing at least a couple of heads of garlic and place them in a small glass container. Pour enough Organic Olive Oil over the minced garlic to cover it completely. Cover tightly and refrigerate to marinate the oil. I use this for so many recipes, that I keep the container filled at all times.
  2. Slice each Chorizo sausage longways and then slice into 1/4 inch pieces.
  3. Chop onion.
  4. At this point, place the oil and garlic in a large sauce pan and turn on medium heat.
  5. Peel and cut potatoes into small bites.
  6. Place remaining ingredients in the pan. Season and stir. Do not cover.
  7. After about 10 minutes, stir and turn the mixture.
  8. Check again every 5-10 minutes until potatoes are tender and have become crispy brown on the edges.
  9. Serves 5-7

This dinner is packed with flavor, so pair it with a green or fruit salad to balance the flavors. Enjoy!


Monday I will be passing along some tips on speeding up your compost pile. Mine is crawling along like a turtle, so I finally decided to take some action--minimal, but nevertheless, action.
