We love our Mexican food ! These potatoes are great when you don't want to have rice. The chorizo gives these potatoes just the right flavor and the cheese, well, everyone knows cheese makes everything better ! lol..I use whatever cheese I have on hand at the time. It's great with Pepper Jack, cheddar or the Mexican cheese blend. I hope you enjoy !
