Potatoes to the Riojana

By Inés Rodrigo


11 in Saladmaster Titanium Sauce Pan

Ingredients :

  • 1,5 kg of potatoes
  • 4 or 5 chorizos oreados, cut into pieces of 2 or 2,5 cm
  • 1 large onion cut into small cubes
  • 3 leaves of bay leaf
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cayenne (optional)
  • 4 choriceros peppers or a tablespoon of prepared pulp (sold in any supermarket)
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 liters water or low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon sweet Vera paprika
  • Salt to taste


  • Peel the potatoes and slice them into 4 or 5 cm pieces (click is to insert the knife a little, and break the potato, so that it is open and release the starch when cooking it)
  • Preheat the 11 in Saladmaster Titanium Sauce Pan over medium heat, until the drop of water slides over the surface
  • Add a splash of olive oil and chopped onion, lower the temperature a little, but not to the minimum
  • Sauté the onion, until transparent, stirring so that it does not burn
  • Add the chopped chorizo and the garlic cloves unpeeled, sauté everything together 2, 3 minutes
  • After the chorizo, add a tablespoon of paprika from the vera and without stopping stirring add also 1 cayenne (or half if you do not like the spicy)
  • Add bay leaves to pot
  • Add the potatoes, and stir well all the ingredients so that the flavors are integrated
  • Add a little salt (do not overdo it, the chorizo is already quite salty)
  • Pour over potatoes broth or water to cover potatoes
  • Increase power to medium until it reaches near boiling
  • Add the choricero pepper (its meat or a tablespoon of the pulp if purchased prepared)
  • Stir well so that the pepper is integrated with the stew
  • Cover the pan
  • When the valve cleaves intensely, lower it to minimum heat
  • Cook for 25/30 minutes, stirring occasionally the casserole so that the potato thickens the stew
  • Open and check the potato (this should be tender, but not get rid)
  • Rectify salt if necessary
  • If the broth is light, undo with the fork a couple of pieces of potato and stir to thicken
  • If the potato is not cooked, cover, raise the temperature to medium power and wait to click, to lower again to minimum and cook for 5 more minutes
  • Serve hot, with fresh parsley leaves on top


  • For a stronger flavor, mix some spicy chorizos
