Spicy Chorizo Tacos

Spicy Chorizo Tacos

Spicy Chorizo Tacos are not only an amazingly delicious recipe, they are super easy to make.

I am a big fan of any dinner that basically only requires me to set some ingredients out and everyone makes their own.

And the spice in these has a more spicy flavor rather than just straight taco meat.

This could be a great weeknight dinner or serve for guests, and everyone makes their own 🙂

Who doesn’t love make your own dinners, right!?

Everyone is happy and less work for the cook!

How to Make Spicy Chorizo Tacos

The only actual cooking for these tacos is browning up the ground spicy chorizo sausage.

No need to even add any extra spices because chorizo is super flavorful on its own.

This takes only a few minutes in a skillet, then drain on a paper towel lined plate.

I also warm the tortillas in another skillet for 30 seconds per side.

Next just set out all the yummy fillings on a tray 🙂

For easy clean up you could line the tray with parchment paper.

I used corn tortillas to keep these gluten free, so choose whether you prefer corn or flour tortillas.

Both are equally delicious in my opinion.

Spicy Chorizo Tacos

Fill each tortilla with the spicy chorizo, cotija cheese, fresh cilantro, and Sweet Pickled Red Onions.

You could also put your own spin and add jalapenos, hot sauce, or whatever topping you prefer.

Next, to add even more spiciness, I recommend Herdez Guacamole Salsa to drizzle on top.

Holy cow this stuff would be amazing on anything!

Spicy Chorizo Tacos are super flavorful with just the right amount of spice!
