  1. Steam the potatoes for 15-20 mins or until cooked.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan. Add the onions and peppers, then cook for about 10 mins until soft. Push the peppers to the side of the pan and add the chorizo, sizzling until cooked though and releasing its oils. Transfer to a plate.

  3. Once cool enough, halve the potatoes. Heat 1 tbsp oil in another non-stick pan and tip in the spuds. Fry for about 10 mins until golden and beginning to crisp. Stir in the onion mix, heat through and season.

  4. Meanwhile, in the onion pan, fry the eggs to your liking. Place them on top of everything, allowing 1 egg per person.

Ooh, way too much unnecessary fat, I make a much healthier version and only use 2 pans!!! parboil potatoes and set aside, soften onions & peppers in a frying pan with a spray of olive oil, remove to a plate and set aside, add chorizo until oil is released, remove from pan and wipe out with kitchen towel, now return potatoes, onion mix & chorizo to frying pan with some tomato puree and water used to boil spuds, simmer gently until everything nice and tender then crack the eggs on top, cover with lid or plate and cook until eggs are set, sprinkle with a little paprika and thats it, goes down a treat with my husband and teenage boys!!

Agree with culeangles that you don't need three pans. I used 2, frying the egg separately. You could manage with one as this recipe is essentially a Spanish fry-up. Can't see those caballeros in the Majorca mountains knocking up a carefree campfire supper with three separate pans. It was delicious BTW. I've given it four stars instead of five only because of the slightly perfectionist method which makes it look more work than it is.

A one-pan dish that uses three pans? That's a new one on me!

Add a pinch of cumin and a pinch of smoked paprika when frying the onions and pepper for authentic Spanish flavour.

The Unearthed brand of chorizo (sold at Waitrose) is expensive but worth it for the flavour. Some cooking chorizos can be disappointing.

I added a pinch of smoked paprika and a pinch of cumin for authentic, Spanish flavour. Yum!
