Render the chorizo in a sauté pan over medium low heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon.  If the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil.  Add the onion and cook for 1-2 minutes.  Add the potato and cook until golden brown and cooked through.  Season with salt and pepper.


Drizzle a little olive oil in a separate pan and fry the eggs until your desired doneness, season with salt and pepper.
