    Directions

    For the chorizo: Using a food processor, process the pork, vinegar, smoked paprika, coriander, cumin, garlic, oregano and chiles until combined. Sprinkle with the salt and some pepper.

    In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat and cook, stirring, until the meat is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add a little water to keep the meat moist if necessary.

    Serve on tortillas with refried beans, pico de gallo and cheese.

    Cook's Note: Add some salsa and cheese at the end of cooking the meat to maximize the flavors and bring moisture to the meat.
