  • 1 small lime zest and juice
  • 1 small garlic clove finely minced
  • ¾ cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • ¼ tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • cup minced yellow onion
  • 1 pound Mexican chorizo removed from the casings

  • All ingredients ready? Let's begin!
  • Start by preparing the crema. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the sour cream, zest of the lime, juice of the lime, minced garlic, cilantro, and salt.
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Prepare your preferred toppings and add them to small serving bowls with spoons. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and cook for about 1 minute. Crumble the chorizo into the pan. Add the garlic. Cook until the chorizo starts to become browned and crisp, approximately 9 minutes. You can continue to break up the chorizo with a wooden spoon while it is cooking.
  • Remove the chorizo filling to a brown paper-lined platter to drain some of the excess fat.
  • Add the tortillas to the warm skillet, one or two at a time, and warm until limp. Flip them halfway through.
  • As the tortillas come out of the skillet, fill them with the chorizo mixture. Drizzle the crema over the chorizo. Spoon your favorite toppings over the filling.
  • Fold the tortillas and serve with plenty of napkins.
