A Recipe by El Popular

Why did the chicken cross the road? To meet Chorizo and grab a taco, of course. Street food, or antojitos (“little cravings”), are the definition of easy-breezy deliciousness – street tacos are no exception. From the food stalls of Mexico to the food trucks of California, street tacos are the pinnacle of Mexican cuisine. Whip up these Chorizo & Chicken Street Tacos today and transport yourself to the vibrant culture of Latin America.

Let’s Get Started

  • Prep Time: 5 mins

  • Cook Time: 15 mins

  • Makes: 6 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (12 oz.) El Popular Chorizo — feel free to use any flavor profile we offer

  • ½ lb cooked & shredded chicken breast

  • 12 corn tortillas

  • ½ cup non fat greek yogurt OR sour cream

  • ½ cup salsa

  • ½ cup fresh cilantro minced

  • 1 onion chopped

  • 1 lime, squeeze to taste

  • Optional toppings: lettuce, cabbage, shredded carrots, and onions

Directions

  • Remove casing from Chorizo and place in a large pan. Throw in onion and cilantro, and cook together until onions are beginning to tender, and Chorizo beginning to brown. Put in the cooked shredded chicken and stir until all contents are cooked and warm.

  • For an authentic experience, place tortillas over the stove burner, flipping occasionally with metal tongs until starting to brown – DO NOT BURN. Alternatively, place tortillas in a small skillet with some cooking oil, toasting until warm.

  • When the tortillas are finished, evenly distribute and spread the Chorizo and chicken mixture on each tortilla. Top with sour cream or yogurt, any topping of your choice, and finish with lime and salt.

  • Put on a plate or, for a more traditional experience, place in a piece of foil and paper towel and enjoy on the go!

Chorizo 101

Directions

  • Remove casing from Chorizo links.

  • Place desired amount in a non-stick skillet.

  • Break-up Chorizo while cooking at medium heat.

  • Sauté for 7-8 minutes until the Chorizo is fully cooked or the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees (F).

  • Enjoy on or in any dish.
