Detailed recipe steps

Papas Con Chorizo Recipe in Cast Iron Skillet
  1. Boil diced potatoes in a large pot filled with water and ½ tsp salt for about 5-8 minutes, until they are easily pierced with a fork, but before they turn mushy. 
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add oil and when it becomes shiny, and hot, add chorizo. Stir 5-8 minutes until chorizo is almost completely cooked. 
  3. Add onions, potatoes, garlic salt, oregano, and butter to the chorizo mixture. Stir regularly until chorizo is done cooking and all ingredients are integrated and potatoes are fully cooked. 
  4. Make the sunny side up eggs, one at a time, in a skillet on low heat. Add some butter to the pan. When it melts, crack an egg in and gently drop it on top. Let it sizzle in place so the bottom fries up a bit and the top stays gooey. Cook until done to your liking, the one in the Sip Bite Go video recipe demonstration cooked in 3 – 4 minutes. Carefully remove it by sliding a spatula beneath, and lifting up the egg, without disturbing the oozy egg yolk on top.
  5. Serve by adding sunny side up eggs on top of papas con chorizo and sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro. Serve with your favorite Mexican food toppings like sour cream, cheddar cheese, and salsa.

Meat thermometer recommendations

Every home chef needs a reliable meat thermometer to cook food perfectly. 

On Sip Bite Go, you’ll often see me using:

  1. Meater thermometer – a fancy wireless thermometer that connects to a phone app – gifted to me from a Traeger partnership.
  2. ThermoPro digital thermometer – which has a wire that connects the thermometer to a display box outside the oven/grill. 

It’s like being psychic! The great thing about either of the thermometers above is that I don’t have to take the food out of the oven to know the temperature. 

How to use ‘em… What I do is stick the digital thermometer in steak, pork, chicken, whatever… Then put the food in the oven, on the smoker, or grill.

While the meat cooks, it reads the temperature so I know exactly what temp meat is as it’s cooking. Without having to take it out and check. It’s really difficult to overcook food when you know exactly what temp it is inside!
