Preparation Time

15 mins

Cooking Time

15 mins




  • Coarse salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 jalapeno, stemmed
  • 1 large avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound Mexican chorizo sausage, casing removed
  • 3 medium tomatillos (about 4 ounces), husked, rinsed, and coarsely chopped
  • 3 medium red-skin boiling or Yukon gold potatoes (about 1 ½ pounds), peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes (about 2 cups)



  • 1 medium saucepan, bring 1 quart of salted water to a boil.
  • Add potatoes and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, combine chorizo and onion over medium heat.
  • Stir until sausage is cooked through and onion is soft, about 10 minutes. Add potatoes and continue to cook over medium heat until potatoes begin to brown or about 8 minutes.
  • As the mixture cooks, mash everything together a little with the back of a spoon or a spatula, scraping up any crusty bits of potatoes so that it roughly holds together. Cover, and keep warm over very low heat.
  • Meanwhile, combine tomatillos, garlic, and jalapeno in a food processor. Pulse until fine, then add avocado and pulse until combined. Season with salt.
  • Wrap tortillas in a warm, damp kitchen towel, put them in a microwave-safe casserole, and cover them. Warm in the microwave for 4 minutes, remove and let stand a few minutes. Top each tortilla with potato mixture and avocado salsa, fold in half, and serve.
