DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a large frying pan and add chopped chorizos (don't add any oil). Saute for 5-10 minutes, until sausages pieces are done.
  • You can chop the veggies while the chorizo is cooking.
  • Remove chorizos and set aside, and drain off all but one tablespoon of the oil that has cooked out of the chorizos.
  • Reheat the oil and add smoked paprika (if using it) and stir well.
  • Add chopped onions and bell peppers and saute for 5 minutes, until softened.
  • Add chopped corn kernels and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add lime juice and 1/4 cup of the taco sauce and cook for 2 minutes. You want the lime juice to mostly evaporate.
  • Add cooked chorizos and let everything heat through for another 2 minutes.
  • While the mixture heats, heat the tortillas according to package directions. I usually zap the whole pack in the microwave for about 1 minute. Be sure to remove the silica gel sachet from the pack before heating.
  • Along the way, get the garnishes ready. These are the remaining taco sauce, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, olives (if used) and any other garnishes you like.
  • Let everyone assemble their own servings. I usually smear some sour cream on a tortilla, then top with the chorizo mixture and all the garnishes, and fold. Be prepared for some fallout and very messy hands.
