Chorizo Bellota Hash

This recipe is not just for breakfast. Often, we will eat a good Chorizo scramble any time of the day or week. This is a warming hearty breakfast hash that touches all the bases. Creamy, starchy and brothy without being soupy. This is a filling dish for 2-3 people but you can stretch it by serving with some muffins or breakfast pastries.
