Chorizo and potato tacos, made with vegan chorizo! Make these vegan potato and chorizo tacos next time you’re craving something crispy, spicy, and savory. Did I mention they only take 15 minutes?
My goodness do I love these tacos. And, I’m in good company. For example, BL has asked for them at least twice in the past few weeks, which is always my litmus test on whether a recipe is good. How I ended up marrying the world’s pickiest eater, I’ll never know.
Did I mention they are only four ingredients and take 15 minutes to make? These might be the taco recipe to end all taco recipes.
Obviously, we’re big fans of Mexican food. See, living in California for a decade will do that to you. After all, guacamole is its own food group, Tapatio goes on everything and tacos are at least a weekly menu staple.
The great thing about tacos is that almost everything works. I’ve made tropical, Korean, spicy black bean, and breakfast tacos… and that’s just in the last year.
These potato tacos are no different, with crispy potatoes, spicy soyrizo and pico de gallo. I like using pico de gallo as a base so I don’t have to chop anything– the tomatoes, onions and peppers are already there for you. So, don’t substitute jarred salsa as it won’t work. Instead, add a bit of onion, diced jalapeno and tomatoes instead.
While we tend to think of spices, fruits and green vegetables are great sources of antioxidants, don’t forget about the potato. They contain a variety of carotenoids and flavonoids, which help protect against free radicals. Plus, creamer potatoes are also fat-free, sodium-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free and 20 calories each.
And, to make mealtime even easier, I’m relying on my favorite potato: Blushing Belle’s from The Little Potato Company. Their petite size is perfect for cooking quickly, the secret to getting these tacos on the table at lightning speed.
Furthermore, Blushing Belle’s are packed with vitamins (B6, potassium, vitamin C and copper just to name a few) along with fiber and antioxidants. Ultimately, it’s why I love eating potatoes in all forms, but especially in these tacos.
