Made a few changes worth sharing - I substituted sweet potatoes for regular since that's what I had on hand and added guacamole. It was a delicious meal and in the future I would continue to make them with sweet potatoes as their sweetness balanced out the chorizo & salsa's spiciness.

Quick, easy, and very tasty. The kids loved them. The perfect recipe to have in your back pocket for the Saturday night TV snack.

I was going to post this recipe myself but seeing as how it was already posted I will review it instead. These are WONDERFUL taco's. I had no idea that chorizo, potato's & mushrooms even went together, but they do! I did cheat and used frozen grated potatoes, which I thawed, put in a towel, and squeezed excess water from. I froze the leftovers which lasted a couple weeks in the freezer and still tasted great when thawed & eaten.
