Never before did potatoes find such a match

Everybody likes potatoes! Ever since Columbus’ discovery of America, when he brought back some of Europe’s most popular-to-be food basics, potato has been one of the ingredients par excellence in our cuisine. Both as a side dish in a main course or as the star of a combination plate, its cooking possibilities are endless. We have chosen baked potatoes, as they keep all their properties and taste. The spice in this recipe is the stuffing with a world-class Chorizo Riojano IGP–an original way to combine two ingredients that are made to match. Simply irresistible!
