Potato and Chorizo Dobladas

Once we finished our taxes yesterday afternoon, Mal suggested getting a drink at Stockholders as a way to celebrate. Hello? A random, mid-day cocktail? Sign me up!

We actually needed to fill out brackets for March Madness, so we brought them to the bar with us. I haven’t been following along with college basketball at all this year, so I just randomly picked teams, but at least I didn’t fill out my bracket based on team mascots or uniform colors like previous years. (It never ends up working anyway.)

I enjoyed a glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc while we hung out at the bar.

When we got home from Stockholders, Mal and I were both hungry for dinner, so I threw together the quickest, most delicious meal ever. I’ve actually wanted to tell you guys about this recipe since November. Remember when I helped judge The Ultimate Potato Recipe Contest? Well, what I made for dinner last night was the winning recipe, and it’s awesome. For the past few months, I was sworn to secrecy, but now that the recipe is printed in the March issue of Better Homes and Gardens, I can share it with all of you!


Are you ready? This recipe super, duper easy and, OMG, delicious. I’ve made it more than a half dozen times since I first tried it, and it’s definitely a new favorite in our house.

Introducing”¦ Potato and Chorizo Dobladas!!!


Potato and Chorizo Dobladas


  • 2 medium (5- to 6-ounce) russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 15-ounce package uncooked Mexican chorizo sausage
  • 10 6-inch flour or corn tortillas, warmed
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. In a medium saucepan, cover potatoes with lightly salted water by 1-inch, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes; drain. Mash with a potato masher.
  2. In a large skillet cook chorizo thoroughly and drain well. Stir cooked chorizo into mashed potatoes.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of the filling to a warm tortilla and fold in half. Repeat with remaining filling and tortillas.
  4. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add 2 to 3 dobladas to the skillet. Cook 3 minutes for flour tortillas, 6 minutes for corn tortillas, or until crisp and golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dobladas, adding additional oil as needed.
  5. Serve warm and top with shredded lettuce, sour cream, salsa, and crumbled cheese as desired.


Obviously, Potato and Chorizo Dobladas were on the menu for dinner last night.

YUM! I seriously love this recipe, especially with some melt-y cheese inside. These Potato and Chorizo Dobladas make a great meal, but they would also be an awesome party appetizer.

Questions of the Day

Do you like college basketball?

Did you fill out a bracket for March Madness? If so, who’d you pick to win the whole thing?

I picked Gonzaga to win to tourney!


  1. I Love college basketball!! I am a huge Kentucky Wildcats fan! I know we lost first round of NIT so last year winning it all was defiantly a better March! Hopefully next years team is injury free and comes out strong 🙂

  2. Def going to try this recipe if I can find chorizo
    had to LOL my daughter did just that couple years ago for bracket picks…. picked her teams by uniform colors! And she won!!! haha works out sometimes 🙂

  3. Gonzaga all the way! A Washington Native right here!!!

    Going to try this recipe soon with sweet potato and vegetarian chorizo from Trader Joes and maybe some goat cheese or swiss – thanks for the recipe!

  4. You’re talking to a HUGE college basketball fan, and Mark and I can’t wait to get in to March Madness! We’re from Kansas (born, raised, and still living in!) so we’re Jayhawks all the way, and I just couldn’t NOT have them taking it all 🙂

    THOSE LOOK AMAZING. It’s basically all of my three favorite foods rolled in to one (chorizo, mashed potatoes, anything wrapped in a tortilla), but I have an unrelated question – did that restaurant decant that wine for you into that mini decanter? Because if so 1.) that’s BALLER customer service and 2.) I want a mini-decanter! I’ve never seen one before

  5. You mean there’s something wrong with picking teams based on something other than their record and skills? Last year I picked teams based on their proximity to Chicago and the year before I picked them based on their mascots… this year I don’t have a boyfriend who’s wrapped up in college b-ball so that means I get March off 😉

  6. I’m a Portuguese girl and love my chourico!! Seriously, adding that to anything instantly makes the dish a million times more delicious. My friend and her family make Portuguese stuffing for Thanksgiving that has chourizo in it, and it’s literally the best thing I’ve ever tasted. I plan to stalk her for the recipe!

  7. thanks for turning me on to Kim Crawford. FYI its 12.99 at lukes in rockland.Much better price than my local place. Also love Murphy.

  8. I don’t care for sports in general, but for my dad’s sake, I’ve taken to filling out a bracket the past few years. It’s also one way to keep myself moderately interested in what’s going on while at a bar during this time of the year 🙂

    My husband actually printed off a bracket for me while at work today and I’m going to fill it out tonight…

    Excellent recipe! Anything even remotely resembling a quesadilla is A-OK in my book 🙂

  9. Sometimes I fill out my brackets based on the locations of the schools and if I would ever want to visit that town/city. Bad, I know. I know nothing about basketball! 🙂

  10. i haven’t filled out my bracket yet, but my husband has made a “diaper derby” bracket pool for all our friends and family to enter for the cost of one package of diapers per entry, and they can win a gift card…i’m so excited to see how it goes!!! (and i can’t enter it, hence, no bracket yet).

  11. I LOVE that Kim Crawford wine and it is a great deal by the bottle. High-Fives! No interest in college basketball, but definitely interested in that recipe. Thanks for sharing…I’m dropping my taxes off tomorrow. UGH!

  12. I love that chalkboard you guys have so much that I told my bf we HAVE to get one when we move in together (and to Boston!) at the end of the summer.

    On a side note… did you see 13.3? HOLY.HELL.

  13. That recipe looks amazing! And I fill out a bracket every year with the same strategy, but I’m a KY girl so I had to pick Louisville to win (since UK SINCERELY let me down).

  14. Totally off topic a bit, but. . .
    I don’t know if you read this blog, but the link will take you to a cross fit interview with a “crossfit junkie” named Arturo Castellanos. One of his quotes made me think of you and Mal (I laughed typing that because it sounds as if I know you personally!) It was, “The couple that plays together, stays together.” He was talking about how his wife has recently started doing Crossfit with him. Thought you would enjoy reading it.


  15. Those look quite tasty! Yes, we all (kids included) fill out brackets and then my husband keeps track and assigns points as teams are eliminated…winner gets to plan the menu for the week 🙂 My son and I have Indiana winning it all!
