Bravo tatties

I have only been to Spain once, a quick trip to Barcelona. When I was there I had some wonderful food including octopus. The one thing I didn't have is patatas bravas. So I am not sure what the authenic article tastes like but this is my version.

I fried some chorizo which I got from the farmers market (puddledub). After it was brown I added some potatoes and sliced onions. Once these were browned, I added a chopped green chilli and some paprika as the chorizo didn't seem to have as much as Spanish versions. I then added a can of tomatoes and also a can of water and simmered until the potatoes were cooked and the sauce was thickened.

We ate this with a green salad. I know that in Spain that this would be a tapas but it made a great meal.
