2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and finely chop the onion; set aside ¼ cup [½ cup] onion for serving.
  • Scrub the potatoes; finely chop the potatoes.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; finely chop the pepper.


Prep and cook the chorizo

  • Cut a small corner from the chorizo packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chorizo to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Spoon off all but 2 to 3 teaspoons fat from the pan.


Cook the vegetables; finish the chorizo

In the same pan used for the chorizo, add the onion and potatoes, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 6 to 8 minutes. 

Add the chorizo and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the chorizo is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the vegetables and chorizo are cooking, prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep the remaining ingredients; warm the tortillas

  • Crumble the queso fresco if needed. 
  • In a small bowl, season the salsa roja to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the 6 [12] tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Set out the tortillas, chorizo and vegetables, queso fresco, salsa roja, and remaining chopped onion. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
