Spanish-Style Rioja Potatoes

Russets, Paprika, Chorizo
Serves 4

Spanish-Style Rioja Potatoes


The only things I brought home from my first trip to Spain were a love letter and the biggest can of pimentón (smoked paprika) I could fit in my backpack. I still have the can that held the pimentón.

It's long since been empty of spice, but safe inside is the first, last, and only love letter I received from my Spanish admirer. The aftershave aroma has been replaced with a smoky memory.

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 small hot red pepper, cut in half
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into large pieces
  • 1 cup roughly chopped Spanish chorizo
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Crusty bread

Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Stir in the shallot, onion, and paprika. Cook for 5 minutes, until the onion is soft. Add the potatoes and stir to coat. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the red pepper, bell pepper, and 2 cups water. Stir and bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Stir in the chorizo and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Remove from the heat and let the mixture rest for 10 minutes. The cooking liquid will have the thickness of a sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with bread for sopping.
