Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for oiling the baking dish
  • 6 ounces chorizo or spicy Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups grated Oaxaca or mozzarella cheese
  • 6 flour tortillas, warmed

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Oil a 3 or 4 cup ovenproof baking dish.

In a dry medium skillet, saute the chorizo over medium-high heat until almost crisp. Remove the chorizo to a plate. Add the onion and garlic to the pan juices and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Return the chorizo to the skillet with the onions and garlic and stir to combine.

Put 1/2 of cheese in the baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 of the chorizo mixture. Repeat with the remaining cheese and chorizo mixture. Bake until the cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes. Serve with flour tortillas for soft tacos.
