This was excellent! The recipe called for chopped chorizos & we are fortunate to have Basque chorizos available. The only changes we would make next time is that for every potato used, use another chorizo & another egg. (ex: 3+3+3) Salt potatoes to taste as cooking. Thanks for the great recipe. We will pass it along to the rest of our family.
