The Spicy Potato Soft Tacos Version

If you’re looking for a way to make your potato taco recipe stand out, you can try adding spicy chorizo. It’s not an extremely spicy ingredient, but it can still be interesting to have several different versions and surprise your guests.

You can also accompany them with one of the many hot sauces we have in Mexico, but make sure they are not too spicy so they don’t hog all the flavor. The sauce is a complement, not the main star.
