In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am posting my delicious beef tacos! I have been making tacos this way ever since I was 17 years old when I learned how from a lady I babysat for. My family loves them and they now prepare their's the same way! It is the chorizo that sets them apart from any other taco that I have ever had. I hope you try this recipe and feel the same as I and my family do!!!

These tacos bring Taco Tuesday to a whole new level. Chorizo mixed with the ground beef is what makes these so special. It gives the filling tons of flavor without adding additional seasoning. Frying the tortillas makes the tacos nice and warm. Dress them however you like, but we followed Jeanne's recommendation. They were perfect! The Test Kitchen
