- Bring a large pot of water to a boil and season with salt. Line a baking sheet with a kitchen towel. Add the potatoes to the pot and cook until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to the prepared baking sheet to dry.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
