Chorizo and Butternut Squash Tacos

These are heavenly! Spicy chorizo, sweet butternut squash and salty cotija cheese! I added some avocado and black olives, which I’m not sure they needed. Did I mention this is a one pot meal! Taco Tuesday and quick cleanup, you are welcome! You can add cilantro, Mexican crema, salsa, whatever you need to make it your own.

  • 1 lb chorizo sausage, case removed
  • 1/2 c thinly sliced onion
  • 1 lb butternut squash, medium dice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 c cotija, crumbled

Heat a 12 skillet over medium heat. Add the chorizo and cook until starting to brown, add onion, squash, and spices, cook covered over medium low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently.

Heat your tortillas in a pan or wrapped in a damp towel in the microwave for a minute.

When squash is soft and brown in places, removed pan from heat.

Scoop chorizo mixture into tortillas and top with cheese.

Serves 4.
