If you are not familiar with Chorizo, it’s spicy ground pork used in many Mexican dishes. Now while Chorizo tastes great, it isn’t very diet-friendly.

While Chorizo is relatively high in protein, it’s also high in calories, sodium and fat, making it something you shouldn’t consume often if you are trying to lose weight.

When the time comes to warm up your tortillas, you have a few options. You can wrap the tortillas in foil and bake them for 10 minutes at 350°F.

You can also put them in a non-stick pan to heat both sides of the tortilla (this is how I usually do it), heat them over an open flame, or if you must, wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave them for about 30 seconds.

If you are not a fan of Chorizo you can substitute for some Ground Turkey and feel free to use whatever kind of shredded cheese you want. Consider the toppings suggestions. Use what you like and make these tacos your own!
