In a medium sized pot place potatoes and 1 tablespoon salt and cover with cold water. Boil for 1 minute, remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes before draining, this cooks the potatoes gently without breaking.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the red onions and chorizo sausage until the onions are tender and lighty colored.
Whisk together the eggs, fresh thyme, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Toss the egg mixture with the potatoes, onions, and chorizo.
In a 10-inch oven proof skillet heat the vegetable oil over high heat until it just begins to smoke. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and gently shake to evenly distribute the filling. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the eggs have set. Invert the tortilla onto a plate and cut into thick wedges to serve. Serve with the Picante Tomato Sauce.
