Potato and Chorizo Crush with Pan-Fried Chicken and Wilted Spinach

We love chorizo, we love potatoes, so what a marvelous idea I thought it would be to put the two together and make potato and chorizo crush. 

Served with pan-fried chicken along with spinach that I'd washed, drained then stir- fried in a hot pan along with a little chopped garlic, salt and nutmeg.  
So simple and yet so good. 

For the Chorizo and Potato Crush you will need:
a chorizo ring, chopped into small pieces then fried till nice and crispy then put to one side.
as many potatoes as you need, boiled in lightly salted water until you can easily insert a knife - just be careful not to over cook them or you'll end up with mush.
a small knob of butter
a very small handful of freshly chopped parsley

When you're potatoes are cooked, drain them well and put them into a bowl.  Using the back of a fork, crush them and add in the chorizo along with a small knob of butter.  When they look suitably 'crushed' stir in the parsley and they're done.

Serve straight away with whatever you fancy.

For the Garlic Spinach:
a huge handful of spinach ends up looking like a very small amount once it's wilted.  So with that in a mind you need a couple of big handfuls for two people.

Wash and drain the spinach well.  No need to completely dry the spinach as it will need a little water to cook.

Heat up the tiniest amount of olive oil in a large frying pan along with one finely chopped clove of garlic taking care not to burn it.  Immediately throw in the spinach and a pinch or two of salt and a pinch of nutmeg.

Stir-fry for just a minute of two and that's it - you're all done.
