  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat, add the chourico, fry until crisp, 30 seconds, then using a slotted spoon, remove it from the pan and set aside.
  3. In the same oil over medium high heat, fry the potatoes in two batches until crispy and golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer each batch to a serving dish and season with salt and pepper and add the chourico to the top of the fried potatoes.
  4. Over medium high heat, fry the eggs in the same oil. Season with salt and cook until the whites have set but the yolks are still runny, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the eggs to top the potatoes and chourico, then serve immediately.
