Chorizo and Potato Tacos with Avocado Salsa Verde

Chorizo and Potato Tacos with Avocado Salsa Verde
Today is Cinco de Mayo and I am celebrating with these tasty chorizo and potato tacos with avocado salsa verde! These tacos are so easy to make! You simply fry some diced potato until crispy and golden brown, add the chorizo and onions and cook some more before throwing it all into some warm corn tortillas along with fresh diced onion, cilantro and the salsa verde! I use homemade chorizo and homemade salsa verde when I can but store bought makes things a lot easier! I like to add cool and creamy avocado to these tacos, either diced or pureed into the salsa verde and I finish things off with a squeeze of fresh lime juice! Have a tasty Cinco de Mayo!

It's like a Mexican hash (especially when you add the eggs)! Great idea and I love your sauce.

Please tell us what kind of potato you use, whether you peel them and how small you cut them up. Also, do you precook them before browning them?

I am curious too about the potato.

Kevin, We made these last night and they were terrific. The salsa verde was just the right combo of sweet and tangy and spicy. I made a quick slaw of cabbage/radish/cilantro/vinegar for the topping. Easy, quick, delicious. Thank you. (we might make our own chorizo next time, but we live in Vermont and the local pork is too good not to buy.)
