  1. Gently sauté the onion and green pepper in some oil, together with the garlic, bay leaf and a little salt.
  2. Add the potatoes, chops and chorizo.
  3. Cover with water and add the chilli and paprika.
  4. Allow to cook gently for about 40 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Serve sprinkled with chopped parsley.


Not all recipes include pork so if you wish to leave them out, add some extra chorizo.

For a spicier version, use hot smoked paprika and as usual, you can adjust the amount of garlic.

Chef's notes

Try not to let the potatoes over-cook or they will disintegrate. If you cannot get waxy potatoes, then use others but add them about 10 minutes later than the recipe states. --JuliaBalbilla 07:33, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
