Before I married or even met my husband I never heard of chorizo, my family never made it when I was younger. I come from a white family; we had Mexican food influences but I never had this yummy, oily, greasy, not good for you even in a dream world sausage. For those who don’t know or even heard of chorizo I’m going to educate you a little. Chorizo is a spicy Spanish pork or beef sausage, to me the beef and pork sausages taste just the same and I really don’t see any difference between the two. There are two different kinds of chorizo; the raw/uncooked (Mexican style) and the cooked/dried (Spanish style); I only like the Mexican style.
- 1 pound chorizo, removed from the casings
- 1 pound ground 93/7 beef
- Corn tortillas, I really like the small sized ones but any sized ones you have on hand are perfectly fine.
- Queso Fresco; creamy, soft white Mexican cheese
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the ground beef cook until brown.
- Add in the sausage/chorizo until the fat is rendered and entirely cooked, about 5 minutes.
- Warm up tortillas on a griddle or skillet.
- Spoon beef/chorizo mixture into the warmed tortillas
- Top with the queso fresco and cilantro
If you have any left overs and I mean IF because these are so yummy that there might not be any leftovers. So if you have any left overs make some chorizo nachos for lunch with your ground beef chorizo mixture. How do you make chorizo nachos? Simple; lay the chips (I like freshly made that I get at my local Mexican market) add the meat mixture and top with queso fresco and cilantro… ENJOY!
