Pico de gallo:

  • 1 ½ cups tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • ½ medium red onion, diced
  • 12 jalapeños, seeded and diced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • ½ cup loosely pack cilantro, roughly chopped

Avocado crema:

  • 1 medium avocado, pit and skin removed
  • ¼ cup Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 2 tbsp lime juice


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb fresh, Mexican chorizo sausage, casing removed
  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • Corn tortillas, for serving
  • Queso fresco or mild feta, for serving


  1. Make pico de gallo: Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl except cilantro. Stir in cilantro right before serving. Set aside.
  2. Make crema: Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  3. Cook chorizo: Warm olive oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add chorizo to pan, break up with a wooden spoon and sauté 4-6 minutes or until browned. Reduce heat to medium, add onion, season with salt and pepper and sauté 3-4 minutes or until translucent. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Keep warm.
  4. Warm tortillas and serve: Warm tortillas over gas flame on stove top for about 30 seconds or until pliable. You may also wrap tortillas in foil and warm in a 350°F oven while cooking filling. To serve, fill tortillas with chorizo, pico de gallo and crema, and top with cheese. Enjoy.
