Tips from Home Chefs

Start the bake
1 Start the bake

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Transfer to a medium baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Bake 14 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

Meanwhile, roughly chop the figs; place in a bowl and cover with hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice.

3 Finish the bake

To the baking dish of partially baked potatoes, add the diced pepper, rehydrated figs (draining before adding), and chorizo (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding) in an even layer. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake 14 to 16 minutes, or until the chorizo is browned and cooked through. Remove from the oven and let stand at least 2 minutes before serving.

4 Make the saffron mayo & serve your dish

Meanwhile, place the saffron in a bowl; add 1 tablespoon warm water. Set aside to steep (or bloom), at least 10 minutes. Add the mayonnaise to the bowl of bloomed saffron; season with salt and pepper. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. Serve the finished bake topped with the saffron mayo, chopped parsley, and almonds. Enjoy!
