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.
