Chorizo Potato Tacos
This is a delicious 4 ingredient taco, that is definitely worth the read. I love chorizo and all the spiciness that sausage delivers and if you haven’t checked out my ground chorizo recipe yet, get on over there.
My Chorizo Potato Tacos were inspired because I have my own garden fresh potatoes and I visited Tendercrop Farms over the weekend and they have their own chorizo sausage.
Chorizo sausage is not easy to find in our local supermarkets, which is why I make my own and we’re lucky Tendercrop comes to the rescue when we’re without. Two, their chorizo definitely packs the heat 👍.
Some cooking notes…
- Cutting the Potatoes and Onions – Since you’re using ground chorizo sausage, you want to cut your potatoes and onion into small dices, which allows you to stuff your tortilla with all that goodness.
- Parboil the Potatoes – Parboiling is simply cooking potatoes until just about ready. For this dish, cut (peel if you desire) your potatoes into small dices. Parboil in salted water for 5 minutes and drain and set aside until you’re ready to combine with the chorizo.
- Cooking the Chorizo – Finally, create crispy chorizo and the crispier, the better 😋! Creating the crisp cooks out the fat and adds another level of deliciousness 😋. Depending on the fat content for your sausage, you might need to add additional EVOO or a tablespoon of butter to help create the desired crispiness.
- Fixings for the Tacos
- Warm or grilled tortillas, this makes a difference and adds flavor to your tortilla
- Lime wedges, adds acid
- Cilantro, adds freshness
- Slice jalapeno, adds heat
- White Onions, adds sharpness
- Avocado Slices or Guacamole, adds creaminess
- Check out my Mexican Birthday Fiesta post for my guacamole recipe.
- Salsa Verde, any salsa will do and adds freshness and heat, but Salsa Verde is a personal favorite

I’m excited to deliver this post because Chorizo and Potato Tacos have intrigued me for some time because of the simplicity of the ingredients (yes, only 4 ingredients) and I hope you enjoy!
I bet you’re drooling, so let’s get cooking!
