Patatas Bravas with chorizo

As part of our Tapas and Tiramisu evening, we couldn't imagine not making patatas bravas. I find the smell of chorizo, paprika, garlic and onions quite seductive and this was no exception. Mr Debs knocked this one up while I did the ironing.

A little olive oil for frying
1 medium onion chopped
3 fat garlic cloves chopped or crushed how you like
1 can ( 400g ) chopped tomatoes
1 large red chilli - chopped
1/2 a teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 a teaspoon paprika
1 kg waxy new potatoes chunked ( not too small )
250g nice cooking chorizo

Heat the oil and fry the onion, garlic and chilli until the onion is softened. Add the cayenne and paprika and stir.
Add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer, then cook for about 20 minutes until it resembles a thick paste.
Season well and if you want a smooth sauce - blitz in a blender. Season to the heat you like.
Meanwhile steam the potatoes for 10 minutes until just cooked and fry the chorizo in a frying pan so that some of the oil is released.
Tip off the excess oil and add 1 tablespoon olive oil, add the potatoes and fry together until all coated, tip into a bowl and cover with sauce.

This is SO yummy, as I said, the combinations of flavours is an absolute hit in my opinion ( see GFS post!)
