Ingredients

  • Guac
  • 1 1/2 large avocados – mashed
  • 2 1/2 tbsp red onion – finely chopped
  • 3/4 tsp garlic – finely minced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro – roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Tacos
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 12 oz chorizo – casings removed
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 or 5 soft corn tortillas – warmed up
  • Purple cabbage – shredded
  • Cilantro sprigs

Directions

  1. Make the guac. In a small bowl, mash the avocados then stir in the red onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. While waiting for it to warm up, remove the casings from the chorizo and break it up with your hands a bit.
  3. Once the skillet is hot enough, add the vegetable oil then the chorizo, breaking it up further with a wooden spoon. Stir the smoked paprika in – you may need to add more depending on the brand of chorizo you have as well as how spicy you like things. Once the chorizo is cooked through and starts to brown (about 5 minutes), take 1/2 of it out of the skillet and place it in a bowl. Continue cooking the rest of it until it is super crispy and starts to char (about 4 minutes longer). Mix the juicy and crispy chorizo together in the bowl you set aside, then taste it and add more salt if needed.
  4. Heat the tortillas up, divide the chorizo mixture between each, then top with guac, a bit of purple cabbage, and cilantro sprigs.
