Chorizo Soft Tacos
Serves: 4 entree portions
1 pound fresh chorizo sausage
1 ¼ cups chunky salsa
8 (6 to 7-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 cup chopped tomato
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup sour cream
1 cup shredded crisp lettuce
½ cup cilantro leaves
- Over medium heat, squeeze sausage from casings into a large heavy non-stick skillet. Cook, breaking up sausage, with back of a wooden spoon, into small pieces. Cook until sausage is brown. Drain all fat.
- Reduce heat and stir salsa into cooked and drained chorizo. Gently simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
- In another heavy ungreased skillet, heat tortillas, one at a time over medium heat, about 10 seconds per side, turning with tongs. Remove from skillet and cover with clean towel to keep warm.
- Spoon about 1/3 cup sausage mixture down center of each tortilla. Top each with cheese, tomatoes, onions, sour cream, lettuce or cilantro. Fold each in half and serve immediately.
