I was lazy and did not peel the potatoes, and I adjusted the quantities a bit: I used about 3/4 of the potatoes, as it looked like my pan would be full with that amount (and leave me some for dinner tomorrow) I used 1 large onion and 3 jalapeno peppers (mine were HUGE) and didn't measure the salt and pepper (just sprinkled what looked like the right amount for our taste.) I used Johnsonville chorizo, which is Mexican style, although the recipe does not specify whether the chorizo is Spanish or Mexican style. I suppose you could use either one, but the Spanish style would be a chunkier dish. The Mexican style is more like ground beef. I did like the flavor quite a lot, but that is because I like that brand of chorizo. (I have had some bulk chorizo which was a grocery store concoction that I did not like.) Even counting the boiling of the potatoes, it was done in less than 1.5 hours. If the potatoes were pre-cooked, then it is done in more like 20 minutes, so it's a good week-night dish. You could use frozen cubed hash browns instead of the boiled potatoes to speed things up a lot. I served it with some red chile sauce (like enchilada sauce) and sour cream with a side salad of cucumber, tomato, onion, and cilantro. I used taco size whole wheat flour tortillas. This would be good with corn tortillas as well as flour tortillas. I had another 1/2 of one for seconds (hubby and I both wanted a bit more than one) and used salsa instead of the red chile sauce. I think I liked it better with the salsa. The leftovers will make some great breakfast burritos with the addition of some scrambled egg. Don't ignore the simple recipes like this one, they contribute to being able to please family and handle a busy schedule at the same time. The chorizo provides complex flavors and leads you to believe it took hours of careful spice measuring but Johnsonville did that for me.
