Serves 2

Prep Time: 7 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 3 large russet potatoes, cut into thin strips about a half an inch wide
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 link Mexican chorizo
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp queso fresco (if you can’t find this, substitute with parmesan cheese)


  1. In a deep frying pan on medium heat, add olive oil and sliced potatoes. Cook for about 10 minutes, mixing every now and then to make sure the potatoes are evenly cooked.
  2. Add onion and cook for a further 4 minutes or until onions begin to soften. Then add garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, and cumin. Stir well and cook for another few minutes.
  3. Take the chorizo out of the casing and add it to the pan, stirring well. Cook until chorizo browns and potatoes begin to crisp up and turn golden.
  4. Add in two eggs and stir until egg has cooked and coated the potatoes. ย Add the chopped cilantro and mix well.
  5. Top with queso fresco and enjoy!
