I read the recipe and the ingredients is more or less the same as used for the very delicious spanish dish called Patatas a la riojana.
When i look the picture it looks like a completly different dish. I have never cooked the patatas a la riojana in the TM but reading your recipe i might try next winter as its a winter dish.

The spanish version usually gets a more red color from the paprika in the chorizo. Its a very nice dish and im sure it can be prepared in the TM
