  • 2 dozen fresh corn tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

4. In a pan set on medium heat cook the onions and chorizo for 5 minutes, add the potato pulp and mash coarsely until all are combined

5. Brush corn tortillas with olive oil and warm on both sides, set aside on a plate and keep warm

6. Fill each tortilla with a tablespoon of the potato filling , fold in half making a flat taco and press together, set aside
