Soy Chorizo and Potato Tacos

What you need: 

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large russet potato, peeled and diced small
1 large onion, diced, divided
salt and pepper, to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 link (about 6 ounces) vegan chorizo
10-12 corn tortillas, warmed
salsa, to serve
lettuce, shredded, to serve
handful cilantro, chopped

What you do: 

1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add potatoes and 1/2 the onion, and cook until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper, add about 1/4 cup water, and put a lid on the pan. This will help the potatoes cook faster.
2. In the meantime, in another pan, cook the garlic and other 1/2 the onion until almost soft. Continue cooking over medium heat until all ingredients are hot and browned all over.
3. Season with extra salt and pepper if need be. The sausage is pretty much spiced and flavored so minimal salt is probably best.
4. When the potatoes are tender, add them into the pan of and stir all ingredients to combine. Remove from heat.
5. Spoon mixture onto the warmed corn tortillas and top with homemade salsa, lettuce and cilantro.
I like things hot so I add extra habanero hot sauce on top! They are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

This was pretty good! It would be really yummy for breakfast with even some regular sausage instead of chorizo. However, I did notice in the instructions that it does not specify when to add the chorizo! I winged it, but it was hard because I had never used chorizo before. Nonetheless this made a very tasty meal!


made it for the first time this evening for dinner and totally enjoyed it... it turned out to be a hit w/ the kiddos!!  ;)b


this recipe inspired me to buy soyrizo at the store when it was heavily discounted and i'm happy i did.  it's one of the best fake meats i've tried.  all the seasoning was in the "meat" so I didn't have to do much.  Definitely a great meal for the middle of the week when things get busy and I don't want to spend a lot of time on dinner.

i added some peppers from the farmer's market, along with red potatoes from my own garden!  delicious.  served with fresh salsa made with veggies from the farmer's market too, and really, there's such an enhancement of the flavors when it's locally grown!  anyway, this is great for a no-fuss, delicious meal.  wish i'd bought more soyrizo while it was on clearance!


This was a great breakfast/lunch recipe. I loved them! My family loved them. I didn't use salsa since the soyrizo was flavorful enough on it's own, I added some back pepper and it gave it that extra kick. I chopped up some romain lettuce, tomatos and a little bit of shredded cheese, soy or cheddar. It was excellent! Really recommend these!


We used this filling for burritos and it was quite tasty, definitely worthy of 4 stars.  I must say though, if I was assigning stars based on aesthetics, I'd have to give this a big 0!!  It looked like a big skillet full of Alpo!  Mmmmm, Alpo never tasted so good!! 


We tried this last night. It was great! We added avocado, sour cream, and homemade salsa. It's definitely going to be one of our new family recipes.


This was so good and so easy to make!  My omni husband couldn't get enough!  This is definitely a keeper. :)


I made this for lunch today.  It was awesome!  I'm going to make this often. Thanks for the recipe!
