I am always looking for new ways to prepare sausage. I regularly purchase ground sausage because it is so easy to prepare. They are already packed full of flavor, so usually the seasoning I add to sausage dishes is minimal. These include andouille, polish sausage, italian sausage (sweet and hot) and chorizo. Chorizo is what I chose for dinner tonight and it did not disappoint. I used a spanish chorizo , which has a smoky flavor. I am trying to use as much of my pantry items as I can without running to the store for last minute ingredients. So I had a ginormous pack of tortillas and a brand new brick of feta that we needed to use, so I put them all together for a great tasting meal. The feta cheese gave the tacos a bit of tang, which I loved. Added with the cilantro and it was a great , flavorful meal. I kept my tacos simple with just meat, feta and cilantro, but my family added salsa, guacamole and sour cream to theirs. I will definitley make these again and add on the base recipe in the future. Maybe black beans or roasted corn.
