TOTAL TIME: 55 MIN
– 1 Russet potato, washed, peeled, and cut into 1⁄4-inch cubes – 1 teaspoon salt – 10 ounces Mexican pork or beef chorizo, casings removed – 1 clove garlic, minced – salt – pepper – 5 eggs – Toasted sliced bolillos or warm tortillas, for serving
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Step 2 – Place potatoes in a large saucepan filled with salted cold water, enough to cover all of the potatoes.
Step 3 – Place potatoes soaking in waterover medium-high heat, checking in at the ten-minute mark. If they are tender but not firm, then remove from the heat. You do not want to overcook the potatoes. If they are too firm to be pierced with a fork, continue to boil for about 5 minutes longer. Using a colander, strain the potatoes but do not rinse.
Step 4 – Meanwhile, heat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet on the stovetop over medium to high heat. While warming, add the chorizo and break it into chunks with a wooden spoon. Cook over medium heat, turning until cooked through and lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes.
Step 5 – Add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium heat. Gently combine until potatoes are coated with chorizo, about 3 minutes. Do not stir too much or the potatoes will get mushy.
Step 6 – Remove the skillet from heat.
Step 7 – Crack an egg into the center and 4 additional eggs around the skillet.
Step 8 – Bake the skillet in the middle of the oven for about 12 to 18 minutes, or until the egg whites are set or until eggs are cooked to your desire. You can reduce the total back time if you prefer for your yolks to be runny.
Step 9 – Serve with toasted bolillos or tortillas and salsa of your choice.
