Sweet N’ Spicy Kale and Chorizo Mash


This was the first recipe I tried out of my Paleo Primer, and it was amazing ! You can use it as a side dish or as a post-workout meal. The sweetness of the potato and the heat from the Chorizo was a wonderful variation, the kale adds a nice texture to the mash. I’m excited to have something new to make to replace my old sour cream garlic mashed potatoes, so good but not a friend of Celiac’s Disease.
