Growing up, most of my Sunday mornings consisted of a steaming-hot skillet of papas con chorizo. My mother would serve this hearty breakfast side as an accompaniment to a sunny-side-up egg and a heaping serving spoon of frijoles de la olla. To this day, this breakfast is my most memorable one because it reminds me of happy childhood moments in the kitchen. Now, I serve this to my son on Sunday mornings and even have enough leftovers for his Monday breakfast burrito.
For a vegetarian option, try soy chorizo. It’s a great way to save on breakfast calories without compromising that savory chorizo spice that pairs well with potatoes.
