Chorizo Tacos Recipe

Chorizo Tacos Recipe

Tacos are, in essence, a way of life for most. Whether for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner, Tacos are always acceptable. These days, Taco combinations are practically endless, and people are topping them with everything from Jackfruit, to Camel meat.

Not only are Tacos extremely versatile, but, they also make whipping up a weeknight dinner a breeze. These Chorizo Tacos are vibrant, health-focused, contain minimal ingredients and can be assembled in under 30 minutes. I call that a weeknight win. Additionally, this recipe can easily be customized to your liking. Vegan? Leave the Chorizo out, or, use Tempeh or additional Veggies. Not a fan of Chorizo? Any protein will work just as well!

Why do I suggest small Tortilla shells for the recipe, versus larger? It’s truly just my preference. In my opinion, larger tacos equal a larger mess, so, utilizing the smaller shells just makes life a bit easier for me. So, feel free to use whatever Tortillas you would like.
