These Chipotle Chorizo Tacos are smoky, spicy and complex! The homemade sweet potato tortilla tempers the spice with a little bit of sweetness and a mezcal lime slaw brightens the flavors and pulls the whole taco together!
Oh, hey! Remember me?
Anyone who is a chef or a food blogger knows that each takes a specific type of creativity, passion and dedication to constantly improving, learning and being on the forefront. And that kind of passion and dedication is all-consuming. There isn’t a day where I don’t miss writing, photographing and connecting with readers and fellow bloggers. I have made some life-long friendships and heard some heart-warming stories along the way, but, ultimately, I had to choose. And I chose being a chef.
This isn’t a “Goodbye Post”. It’s more of an acknowledgement that I fell off the face of the Earth.
I don’t even know where to start. I could just gloss over my actual life and pretend like it wasn’t turned upside-down four times in the past 2 years, but that seems disingenuous.
Rather, I would like to take you on that crazy, tumultuous, rollercoaster of a journey. Gradually.
I’ll need you to be patient because updating a blog when you’re working 12-16 hour days, 6 days a week is a formidable task.
My life is like one of those novels that jumps entire chapters between characters and it isn’t until half-way through when all the stories intertwine into one cohesive plot that not only makes sense, but leaves you craving more. More.
Umm speaking of more…perhaps you are here for the tacos? [Like that segue?]
No shame in that. Tacos are pretty much my answer to all life’s problems.
Well, tacos and rosé. (Not together. Everyone knows tacos call for cervesa or mezcal margaritas. Duh.)
My “Taco Tuesday” is more like Taco “Any day that ends in ‘y’”. Just sayin’
I originally dreamed up and made these tacos for a recipe competition. And they didn’t win…their loss is your gain, my friend!
In my book, any day when you make your own sweet potato tortillas is a win.
The sweet potato tortillas temper a bit of the chipotle chorizo filling’s heat and the mezcal lime slaw adds a crunchy bite of freshness!
HOLD UP: mezcal in the tacos.
That’s right. I said mezcal in the tacos.
It’s like eating a taco while taking a sip of a refreshing mezcal margarita. Mmmhmm.
Oh. Yes. She. Did.
You can prepare all of this in advance, throw together some margaritas, chill some cervesas, call over some friends and bask in everything Summer has to offer!
