‘Chorizo’ Potato Burritos

If there’s anything we love more than tacos, it’s burritos. Chorizo & potatoes may seem like an unlikely pairing, but shake that thought right out of your head. Chori-papas is a classic combo and for good reason. It’s great on its own, but add a healthy dollop of guac, some cilantro and a squeeze of lemon and you’re really in business.
