Spicy Chorizo Tacos

Chorizo Tacos

In keeping with the fiesta theme this week, today we are talking tacos. I have never made it a secret that tacos are one of my favorite foods. And I am not talking about the ground beef mixing with a package of seasonings – though, those are perfectly delicious – I am talking about the homemade kind with great toppings. Over the weekend while I whipped up some chorizo tacos while we were enjoying our sangria.

When dreaming up the recipe I tried not to over think anything. Instead, I kept it simple with cooked chorizo as the main ingredient. Then, I added it to warm corn tortillas along with lettuce, sour cream, avocado slices, queso fresco, and a dab of peach salsa. There was nothing all that complicated about the preparation which is exactly the point. Tacos are supposed to be simple! In fact, if we choose to have a Cinco de Mayo get together I think I would just serve up the cooked chorizo and all the fixin’s buffet-style and let people assemble their own meals.
