I’ve been wanting to try my hand at chorizo tacos for a while and it seemed like the perfect fit for Taco #11. Plus, its super hot outside, and this was minimal cook time—chopping, stove, the whole thing—minimal. And, to top it all off, my mom (love her) sent me a taco roundup she saw over the weekend and this was one of the recipes. Divine, motherly, intervention I tell ya.
Now, I don’t know if it was the high hopes I had set for these guys, or the heat, or what, but I can’t lie. They’re not my favorite. I know, you’re probably thinking it’s because I didn’t put guacamole on them. And you may be right. Or, it could be that I used chicken chorizo rather than original chorizo. I mean, I’m no chorizo expert, but I’m guessing the sub didn’t do these bad boys justice.
Shell: Store brand corn tortillas
Filling: Chicken Chorizo
Toppings: Cilantro, cotijo cheese, diced onions & a squeeze of lime
Results: Like I said above, not my favorite. I tried to stay true to the recipe and that might have hurt me. I think with salsa and guacamole, these would be delicious, but that may be the guacamole talking. I also didn’t have a lot of onion left (oops) so, maybe they could have used a bit more.
