DH likes the vegetarian Chorizo better then the meat Chorizo’s he grew up with. So he was thrilled when I re-worked the tacos he grew up with.

  1. Cook chorizo per package directions. Set aside.
  2. Spray large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Cook onion and potato until onion is tender and potatoes are browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in chorizo and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat; stir in the cheese and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat tortillas one at a time in skillet untill softened. Spoon about 1/2 cup filling mixture onto each tortilla and fold in half.

These are great! I used WW Mexican blend cheese for the cheese but regular sour cream. I found the vegetarian chorizo at Whole Foods -- and we can't wait to have these again!!! No one even suspected we wern't using meat in these! Thanks for sharing this keeper which is a snap to put together!

This was a delicous, inventive dinner. My soyrizo (from Trader Joe's) didn't have cooking directions so I ended up just stir frying it for 10 minutes. I found that the filling was bit bland so stirred in some salsa directly to the mix at the end and sprinkled with cumin. Loved the potato/chorizo mix overall. Thanks for the post.

Very yummy! I used flaxseed/blue corn tortillas which added some more flavor and halved the recipe. I used a Mexican blend of cheese and left out the cilantro(I didn't have any). Great taco! Thanks, made for PRMR game.
