Chorizo Tacos

Ground pork is a pretty cheap item to purchase.  It seems to be cheaper than ground turkey and beef, so when I'm on a budget, it's one item I reach for while shopping.  Problem is, I don't really like the flavor of it. However, I have 2 pretty good recipes for using it, and this one is pretty popular with my family.  Very cheap and easy to prepare.

Chorizo Tacos
1 lb. ground pork
1/2 tsp. salt, pepper
2-3 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. sugar
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 1/4 tbsp. water
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 8oz. can green salsa (Herdez is good)
Handful of shredded/grated cheese (cheddar is good)

1. Add all ingredients (except salsa & cheese) in medium bowl, mix well. Cover and refrigerate for about 30+ mins.

2. Fry chorizo until completely cooked.  Then add salsa and cheddar, mixing well.  Once the cheese has melted, remove from heat.

3. You are now ready to place about 1 tablespoon of the chorizo onto warmed corn tortillas. Garnish with desired items (lime juice, more cheese, cilantro, onion, etc.) or just as is.
