Cheese and chorizo tacos are a great way to enjoy the rich flavors of Mexican cuisine without spending all day in the kitchen. Tacos are so simple that they can be made with just a few ingredients and basic equipment.
The first thing to do is find the right type of tortillas. We recommend using wheat flour tortillas for this taco recipe because they’ll hold up better on the grill or in a skillet than corn-flour tortillas would.
You’ll also need some cheese – the best ones will be Oaxaca, cheddar or Monterey Jack, because they melt well but also hold their shape when cooked in a skillet or on a grill over an open flame. You’ll also want to buy chorizo for this recipe; chorizo comes in a variety of flavors, including spicy or sweet, so be sure to buy the one that best suits the flavor you want the dish to taste like.
