Chorizo and Chicken Tacos!

Chorizo, Chorizo, Chorizo! This is one of my favorite things to eat. My papa used to make it pretty much every weekend for breakfast. Its amazing with potatoes and/or eggs, or just by itself with some beans. I wasn’t able to find Mexican chorizo for some time since I moved up north and I have definitely been missing it. But luckily I was able to find a little store in Staten Island that sells amazing Mexican chorizo.

For those of you that may not know Mexican chorizo, it is made of ground beef or pork (there are other varieties, such as soy and chicken but I’ve never tried those) and is usually a deep red color. It is seasoned with chili powder, garlic, salt, paprika and lots of other deliciousness. The main signature of Mexican chorizo, besides the color, is that it crumbles when you’re cooking it, resembling finely minced meat.

Since I’ve no found chorizo again I have been trying to find new ways to incorporate it into my dishes. So here’s part one of a three part chorizo series!
