One of the Rioja's most famous dishes contains many of the region's signature ingredients: bell peppers, potatoes and chorizo, simmered in a smoky sauce thickened by the potato starch. "Simple foods based on simple ingredients go very well with wine," Janet Mendel says.    More Spanish Dishes  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat until softened, 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and portobello and stir to coat with oil. Add the green pepper, bay leaf, paprika, crushed red pepper and water and bring to a boil.

Step 2    

Cook the potatoes over low heat for 10 minutes. Add the chorizo and simmer over moderately low heat until the potatoes are tender, 20 minutes. Season with salt, discard the bay leaf and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Peppery, medium-bodied Rioja.
