Get Out Your Spanish Flare!

I felt like buying some Soyrizo (veg. chorizo) today and I found a recipe that used chorizo online which I easily veganized.

This meal is called, simply, Potatoes with Peppers and Soyrizo. It makes me think of something they might make as a comfort food in Spain.


5 medium potatoes (russet, idaho, etc.), cut in 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
2 fresh jalapeno chiles
1 large onion, halved and then cut in 1/4 inch strips
2 large green bell peppers
1 package of "soyrizo" (found in most grocery stores [at least in my area])
3/4 cup white wine


-Heat oil on medium high heat in medium or large skillet until oil is hot
-carefully add potatoes and salt and saute for 20 minutes or until browned and cooked through, stirring occasionally.
-when potatoes are done, use a slotted spoon and place them on several paper towels to soak up excess oil, reserve oil in the skillet for other ingredients
-cut a 2 inch slit in the sides of the jalapenos, add to skillet along with onions, peppers, and soyrizo and reduce heat to medium
-cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, until vegetable are cooked and softened...about 6-10 minutes
-add wine and boil until the mixture thickens...about 5 minutes.
-discard jalapenos, and mix the onion-pepper mix with potatoes in a large mixing bowl
-add salt and pepper to taste

So damn good! Those Spaniards sure know how to cook. And now, so do I.

K, that's it. Could you make this for dinner for me one day? I have no shame asking. :) It's 1:00 am, again, which is usually when I read your blog, and you've given me another early morning craving. Now, you owe me.
