With a couple of enhancements, you can really bring out the natural flavors of this dish without spending too much. This chorizo recipe is delicious for tacos, enchiladas, nachos, and plenty of other dishes.
1 Tbsp. avocado oil
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup poblano pepper, finely diced
1 soy chorizo (I used Trader Joe’s)
1 Tbsp. chipotle in adobo sauce, minced
In a frying pan on medium-high heat, add oil and onions. Cook for 3-5 minutes and then add the garlic, poblano, chorizo, and chipotle chili. Cook for 4 minutes or until chorizo is lightly browned.
Serve chorizo in taco with cilantro, salsa, guacamole, or your choice of toppings.
Chef’s tip: Add a tablespoon or two of your favorite salsa to add depth to the flavor of the dish.
This Tortilla Soup is like no other, partially because it is filled with all the things I enjoy most about Mexican cooking, and because it’s plant-based. Normally, it is made with shredded chicken and a lot of cheese, so I am super excited to share this healthier vegan version with you! This meal is packed with a variety of fresh and organic vegetables and is topped with crunchy tortilla strips. This soup will warm you up all winter long!
In a pot on medium-low heat with your oil, add the corn tortillas and crisp up a bit, roughly 2-3 minutes. Remove and set aside briefly.
Then you will add the garlic, onion, and jalapeño pepper until they are translucent but not browned. Put the corn tortillas back into the pot.
Next add your tomato paste, cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder, water, vegetable broth, cilantro, tomatoes, and half of the corn. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer, cooking for 15-20 minutes.
Using a blender or hand emersion stick, blend until soup is smooth in texture. Add the remaining corn and bring back to the stove on a low heat to simmer. Be careful not to let the bottom of the soup burn. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.
Serve soup topped with tortilla chips and optional vegan cheese.
Chef’s tip: If you want, you can add 1/4 tsp. Crushed red pepper flakes to spice the soup up for a better kick.
