A slow cooker helps make a really convenient dinner for my family. I have been branching out into side dishes recently, which is ideal when I have something that just cooks better in the oven or on the hob.

What potatoes should you use for these chorizo loaded potatoes?

Any potatoes work with this really! I find that a floury potato is a great option for slow cooker dishes.

Want to boost the cooking time slightly?

I’d suggest part boiling the potatoes for around 4-5 minutes in salted boiling water. This will help to reduce the cooking time a little.
