Potatoes with Chorizo and Onions

Every once in a while when I’m flipping through channels on the TV, a dish catches my eye on the Food Network. I saw Rachael Ray make this one on 30 Minute Meals, and was drooling by the end of the show, so decided to make it for dinner that night.

Paired with some scrambled 2Silos eggs, it was delicious, filling, and most importantly, done quickly.

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
3/4 pound, 1 package, chorizo, very thinly sliced on an angle, pull away any loose casings
6 small Yukon gold potatoes, very thinly sliced
1 medium onion, very thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley, a generous 1 or 2 handfuls

Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, and the chorizo. Cook sausage 2 minutes, flip cook another minute then add potatoes and onions to the pan in an even layer over the sausage. Season the potatoes and onions with salt, pepper and paprika then turn sections of the potatoes using a spatula so that the chorizo is on top and potatoes and onions are on the bottom. Place a smaller skillet on top and press down. Weight the skillet with a few heavy cans. Cook 10 to 12 minutes. Remove weight and turn again to combine all ingredients. Cook another 3 to 4 minutes then add parsley, remove from heat and serve.
