Easy to Make Chorizo Tacos With Peach Mango Salsa

Updated on June 24, 2017

Hunger

It starts with a rumble, followed by an uncomfortable wrenching, with a growing aggravation towards anyone around. Hunger strikes again, but what can possibly ease the pain?

After strolling aimlessly through vacant grocery store aisles with my girlfriend, a daily question arose: "What should we have for dinner?" Instantly, my brain started filing through its own sort of database of potential food options. A burger? No, we just grilled burgers yesterday. Should we make a pizza? We always eat pizza. Have we made tacos yet? Tacos. Everyone loves tacos, and it turns out, they're not too difficult to make.

After the instructions, you'll find a video I made to show you how to make these delicious tacos.

Cook and Prep Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: One sausage is enough for four to six tacos.

Ingredients

Good food starts with good ingredients.

  • Chorizo Sausage (can substitute chicken or beef)
  • Flour or Corn Tortillas
  • Cilantro
  • Peach Mango Salsa
  • Cumin
  • Sriracha
  • Mexican 4 Cheese Blend
  • Salt and Pepper

The Process

  1. Start by removing the casing of the chorizo sausage. Simply run the tip of a sharp knife down the center of the sausage to puncture the casing.
  2. Next, peel the casing back over the top of the sausage and pull down gently to remove the casing completely. Sometimes the meat will stick to the casing, but be patient and remove as much of the casing as you can.
  3. When the casing is removed, carefully slice the chorizo into discs. Take a few discs at a time and slice them into a smaller, more manageable size for a taco. Place the chorizo into a dish together and preheat your pan of choice over medium/ high heat.
  4. Once the pan is heated, put the chorizo in the pan and shake to ensure each piece is getting heated. Stir, shake, and season until the meat is golden brown. Place cooked chorizo in a new dish and set aside.
  5. Heat both sides of tortillas on preheated pan for about 10 to 15 seconds on each side. Once they are warm, put them aside for assembly.
  6. Now, this is the easy part. Start by putting even amounts of meat in each taco. Next, add a spoonful of the peach mango salsa followed by a dollop of sour cream. Finish it off with a sprinkle of cheese, Sriracha, and fresh cilantro on top.

Enjoy Your Creation

Now that all the cooking is done, reward yourself by taking a bite! If chorizo isn't for you, or you're not comfortable working with the ingredient, substitute your favorite protein for a similar result. If cooking for a crowd, one sausage is enough for around four tacos so adjust your quantities accordingly.

The inspiration for this taco was simply to make something that would satisfy all of my taste buds. And my girlfriend's of course. These tacos are salty, spicy, and sweet and always keep you coming back for another bite. Until you realize you ate them all.
