Pumpkin & Chorizo Tacos with Homemade Salsa Verdé

Pumpkin

Pumpkin & Chorizo Tacos with Homemade Salsa Verdé

Ingredients:

4 cs/links fresh Chorizo sausage (not pre-made or pre-cooked)
4 cups Pumpkin (chopped small)
1 medium Onion
3 cloves Garlic
2 tbsp Mexican Oregano
1 tbsp Cumin powder
1 tbsp Coriander powder
1 tbsp smoked Paprika powder

Preparation:

Heat a heavy bottom pan on medium-high heat and add 3 tbsp of oil. When the pan is hot, add chopped Garlic and sauteé for 15 seconds and add the chopped onion. Sautee for 3 minutes. When the onion starts to caramelize, add the chopped Pumpkin and sautee for 5 minutes. Add all the spices (Oregano, cumin, corriander, paprika) and toast the spices for 1 minute.

Add the Chorizo to the pan, breaking it up into small chunks as you toss it in. (trying to break up the sausage in the pan will inadvertently crush the Pumpkin into a mushy mess) Sautee this mix for 3 to 4 minutes.
When the sausage has crispened up on the edges, turn off the stove. Taco filling is done.

To serve, roast the tacos over direct fire for 30 seconds and layer in the filling and pile on the Green salsa ! Sprinkle some finely chopped Cilantro and squeeze a bit of lime and enjoy your trip to Fall Taco heaven!
