Pork Chorizo Tacos

Chicken and pork chorizo tacos blend rich flavors and satisfying textures to create an authentic and delicious Mexican culinary experience. This recipe will guide you through the necessary steps to prepare this dish at home, offering variations and recommendations to customize your gastronomic experience.


For the filling:

  • 500g of chicken breast, cut into small cubes
  • 250g of pork chorizo
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To serve:

  • Corn tortillas, heated
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • Chopped white onion
  • Lime slices
  • Salsa of your choice (green, red, guacamole)

Optional for customization:

  • Crumbled fresh cheese
  • Sliced avocado
  • Mexican cream

Step by Step

  1. Prepare the filling: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the pork chorizo and cook until well browned and crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the chorizo and let it drain on paper towels.
  2. Cook the chicken: In the same skillet, add the chicken cubes. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the chicken is golden on the outside and no longer pink inside, about 6-8 minutes. Reintroduce the chorizo to the skillet and mix well to combine the flavors.
  3. Assemble the tacos: Place a generous portion of the chicken and chorizo filling in the center of each heated corn tortilla. Garnish with chopped onion and fresh cilantro.
  4. Add toppings: Customize your tacos with your favorite toppings such as lime slices, salsa, fresh cheese, avocado, or Mexican cream.

Variations and Recommendations

  • For spice lovers: Add chopped jalapeños or serrano peppers to the filling while cooking the chicken for an extra spicy kick.
  • Low-calorie version: Substitute corn tortillas with lettuce to make low-carb “wrap” tacos.
  • For vegetarians: Use vegetable chorizo and substitute chicken with mushrooms or a mix of vegetables such as zucchini and bell peppers.


Can I prepare the filling in advance?

Yes, the filling can be prepared in advance and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Warm it up well before serving.

What type of salsa do you recommend for these tacos?

Homemade green or red salsa are excellent choices. You can also opt for some guacamole to add creaminess.

Is it necessary to use corn tortillas?

It’s not necessary, although corn tortillas are traditional. You can use flour tortillas if you prefer, though the taste will be slightly different.

How can I prevent corn tortillas from breaking?

Heat the tortillas in a skillet over medium heat until they are soft and flexible. You can also wrap them in a damp cloth and heat them in the microwave for a few seconds.

Chicken and pork chorizo tacos are a versatile and delicious option for any meal. Experiment with different salsas, toppings, and versions to make this recipe a dish that reflects your personal tastes. Enjoy your meal!
