Step 1

In a saucepan, add the potato and enough salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until just tender; drain.

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium high heat. Add the chorizo and cook, breaking it up, until browned, about 3 minutes. Mash into the potatoes. Add one tablespoon oil to the skillet along with the onion, tomato, roasted pepper and chile; season with salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Stir into the potato mixture along with cheese and cilantro.

Fill a large skillet with oil, 3/4 inch deep. Heat to medium-high.
Microwave tortillas in sealed plastic bag for 25 seconds. Roll up 2 tablespoons of the potato mixure in each tortilla. Add to the oil seam side down; repeat until the pan is full. Fry, turning once, until golden; 4-5 minutes; drain on paper towel.
