The first step after chopping up the potato bits, it’s to boil them until they begin just to soften. Drain and set aside.
In a very large pan heat up the oil then add the chopped onion. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and sauté until soft and translucent.
Once the onion is nice and soft you can add the minced garlic. Sauté for a couple of minutes. Stir now and then to prevent it from burning.
Now you’re ready to add the vegan chorizo. Mix until it’s completely combined with the cooked onion and garlic. Sauté until the chorizo is nice and crispy. If you don’t like it a little crispy then just cook for about 8 minutes or less.
Now you’re going to add the boiled potato pieces. Mix until well combined with the chorizo mixture.
Once everything is well combined you can sprinkle in some more salt. Give the ingredients another good mix. Sauté for 10 more minutes.
After the 10 minutes, you can carefully taste the chorizo con papas and see if it needs more salt or not. If so add it slowly because remember you can’t remove the saltiness!
Please note that the calories will depend on the brand of vegan chorizo you use!
This vegan chorizo con papas can be used as filling for tacos and any of your favorite Mexican dishes.
You can use frozen or canned potatoes instead. I prefer fresh and to cut down the cooking time I’ll boil them or cook in the air fryer a few minutes before mixing with the chorizo.
