Ingredients

Chorizo:

  • 1 ½ lb duBreton extra lean ground pork
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp coriander
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

Tacos:

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and finely diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large head of romaine lettuce
  • ½ cup salsa verde
  • ½ mango finely diced
  • ½ avocado finely diced
  • 1 radish thinly sliced
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • Lime for serving

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix together the deBreton pork with all of the spices and vinegar. Stir until well incorporated and mixed, then transfer plastic wrap. Wrap it up tightly into a log and refrigerate overnight.
  • Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add in the sweet potato and cook until browned and soft, about 6- 7 minutes. Season with a pinch each of salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl.
  • Return the pan to medium high heat and add in the remaining oil. Stir in the chorizo and brown until cooked through. Add the sweet potato back in, just to rewarm.
  • To serve, add the chorizo-sweet potato to the lettuce leaves, and top with salsa, mango, avocado, radish and cilantro. Serve with lime, if desired.
