Red wine Chorizo Potato nest – Pintxo

Pintxo Saturday is here again. Today I am sharing a recipe inspired by a pintxo my father used to make when we were kids, chorizo on a crispy potato nest.

I decided to give a twist to the recipe and make soft sautéed chorizo with red wine and crispy potato nest. The result is amazing!

Hope you try it!

More pintxos (tapas/fingerfood) next Saturday 🙂 #pintxorootsandcook
