I love this cookbook! The first recipe I made with the chorizo and potatoes, it’s so good!
Has anyone actually made this? I hate when recipes have 5 star reviews but no one has actually tried making the dish. 🧐
Sorry I didn’t answer sooner, but yes, I have and it’s wonderful!
Going to try this tonight.
Made this tonight. Was delicious!
I am so glad you liked it! I made it last week for tacos de papa and it was fabulous!
Yum! Love a good Instant Pot recipe, and my kids absolutely love spicy food. Thanks.
Oh good! Then they will love this!
not really a helpful recipe for the potatoes part
Hi Nance. Do you have a question about the potatoes? I have made this recipe several times and it is always delicious. I would love to help if I can. What is the confusion?
Made this for my hubby and served it with eggs, queso, and tortillas. He said I could put it in our regular breakfast rotation. I used alligator sausage this time around and it was great!
I am so glad you (and he) liked it! I love this recipe, the Instant Pot and the book!
Doesn’t work with the instant pot. Constantly get a burn warning and the chorizo sticks to the bottom of the pot.
Hi Billy, I have made this recipe at least a dozen times and never had that happen, let’s see if we can figure this out.I have no idea why you would get a burn warning when oil and onions are already in the pan and you only saute the chorizo for four minutes. That doesn’t even give the chorizo enough time to cook, much less burn….are your onions caramelizing fine before adding the chorizo?
Hi Billy, I didn’t hear back from you but took the liberty of contacting the book/recipe author. She said the only time she has heard of the burn warning coming on is with the new Instant Pots. The older ones did not have this problem and she wrote the book before the latest versions were introduced. My IP is about 4 years old which may again be why I have not experienced this problem.
Tastes delicious but I too have a newer Instant Pot and got the dreaded ‘Burn’ warning. Had to finish it on the lowest setting of Sauté despite having put in extra liquid to counter the burn issue. Oh, well: this is not a recipe for a newer Instant Pot.
Well dang it! I am glad you thought it was delicious though. Thanks for the comment. I will add a note to use the lowest setting of the saute feature if you have an IP with the burn warning.
Prefer skillet version. Chorizo not cooked to my taste. Lots of fluid. This was fast, and easy cleanup, but will try a different recipe before coming back to this one
Sorry josh. I am not sure why that would happen. Mine always comes out perfectly.
if you’re using a newer instant pot you should use 1.5 – 2 cups of chicken broth, otherwise it won’t seal and you’ll get the burn warning
Thank you. I have an older Instant Pot and this recipe has always worked great for me. Good to know!
