Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4
  • 2 links fresh Mexican chorizo sausage, casing removed
  • ¾ cup sliced yellow onion
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 3 cups diced new potatoes
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ cup loosely packed cilantro, chopped
  • Soft tortillas (wheat or corn - whichever you prefer)
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Sour cream
  • Sliced avocado
  1. In a large skillet set over medium high heat, brown the chorizo for about 4 minutes, stirring frequently and breaking up into clumps, until the fat starts to render out and sausage is half-cooked.
  2. Stir in onions and peppers. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes or until onions are soft and translucent.
  3. Add potatoes to the pan, and sprinkle with smoked paprika. Cover and continue cooking for approximately 5 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat as needed if the filling starts to brown too much before the potatoes are done.
  4. Transfer the cooked filling to a serving bowl and gently fold in cilantro. Serve with warmed tortillas and toppings of your choice.
