Chorizo, Mushroom & Potato Tacos



YOU GUYS! These tacos? They are so, so good. Like, I-want-to-be-one-of-those-families-who-has-a-Taco-Tuesday-and-have-these-be-our-weekly-tacos good.

I’ve had this recipe bookmarked in Mexican Everyday for ages, and I’m so angry it took me so long to make them. I have been missing out for way, way too long. These are easily some of the best tacos I’ve ever eaten, and I have eaten a lot of tacos.

Plus? They really couldn’t be any easier. You just cook some chorizo (really, you could just stop right there and these would be great since anything that starts with chorizo is delicious), add some mushrooms and grated potato (I know, kinda weird, right?) and you’re done. Somehow, with those few ingredients and minimal cooking time, something wonderful happens. Zachary actually asked if these were hash browns and admittedly, they are pretty similar (assuming you eat super tasty hash browns), so if you don’t want to eat them as tacos, you could always serve them with an egg and be done. Or, I don’t know, just spoon directly from the pan into  your mouth.

  1. I think it’s been 3 years since I first made these tacos, and they are still in the top 3 of my favorite meals. We actually just had them last week as a matter of fact! 🙂 …. and now I want to make them tonight…

    1. Yeah, working on the blog post made me want to have them again. I think they’ll have to reappear next week… 🙂

    1. Vlora, is it raw under the casing? Can you remove the casing? If not I think you may have gotten dried/cured chorizo. It won’t really be the same but it could probably still be used, just diced. You will probably need a little extra oil and since it’s already cooked, you don’t need to cook it, just brown it a little.

      1. thanks elly, yes it’s dried (like sausage), i could probably use ground turkey or something but nonetheless i am making with the churizo i got. i will let you know how it turns out. thank you for the easy, what sounds like, yum recipe.

  2. Hi Elly! I made this last night and it was so good! Mine turned out VERY greasy, though. Did you drain the fat off the chorizo before adding in the mushrooms? Everything ended up bright orange.

    1. Hi Meg. It really depends on the chorizo. Most of the time I’m okay without draining, but sometimes I do spoon a bunch out. If there seems to be a ton of grease, I would just pour some off. As long as you still have enough to flavor and cook the mushrooms/potatoes, you’re good!
