Ingredients

  • Chorizo. Use vegan chorizo; the brands I like the most are Trader Joe’s and Abbot’s chorizo (pictured here).
  • Potatoes. The best potatoes for “papas con chorizo” are the ones that hold their shape well when cooked, such as Yukon Gold, new potatoes, or baby potatoes. These potatoes have a waxy texture that prevents them from becoming too mushy, making them ideal for dishes like papas con chorizo. Avoid using starchy potatoes such as russets or baking potatoes as they tend to fall apart and become mushy when cooked.
  • Onion. Diced white or yellow onion.
