Instructions

  • Boil the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 15-20 minutes until just tender. Drain and leave to cool slightly. Cut into chunky slices.
  • Dry fry the chorizo in a non-stick frying pan over a moderate heat for 3-4 minutes, until crispy. Throw in the peppers and potatoes and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the Old El Paso Original Taco Spice Mix. Sizzle away for 2-3 minutes until the spice mixture has coated everything well.

Make it your way

Make a bed of spinach leaves on the bottom of a taco shell, pile in some of the chorizo and potato mixture, then add a dollop of Old El Paso Mild Original Salsa.

Cooks Tips

If you like your tacos less spicy, just use half the Old El Paso Original Taco Spice Mix - or cool things down at the table by serving with sour cream.
