Heat the olive oil in a saucepan add the potatoes in small batches and cook until soft.

Remove from the oil and cool refry until slightly crisp and golden.

Add a little olive oil to a frying pan and add the garlic and chilli and cook until softened slightly.

Add the tomatoes and paprika and cook until you have a mushy sauce.

Spoon over the cooked potatoes and tuck in.

I like to serve a plate of cooked Chorizo sausages, sliced Serrano ham and olives with these also to nibble on.
