Chorizo & Rice Soft Tacos

Chorizo & Rice Soft Tacos

I had some leftover rice in the refrigerator and some Chorizo sausage in the freezer. If your family is like mine, they are often afraid to try new things. So in order to get them to try Chorizo, I chose to use it in a more familiar fashion: tacos. This family adores tacos, so the likelihood of them giving this dish a chance was much higher than just slapping them on the grill. It was worth it, this dish was a hit!

Chorizo & Rice Soft Tacos

You can use whatever Chorizo sausage you prefer, I developed this recipe using Johnsonville Chorizo and it was fabulous. I removed the sausage from its casings and crumbled it first. This is a really easy meal and takes very little time to prepare.

Not a bad way to introduce Chorizo to a reluctant family. :)
