I made this up today when I realized I had next to nothing in the kitchen. Last week, the grocery store was giving away free tubes of chorizo. I rarely say no to free things, even when it's something I don't utilize too much. I always find chorizo to be a bit overpowering in spice and saltiness, so I thought evening it out with some chopped apple would aid it. It was perfect! The sweetness of the apple was a great balance for this breakfast treat. I added little squares of the last tortilla I had in the fridge to make it come together like a taco. It was so very good!

Traditional chorizo originated in Spain and Portugal and is a pork sausage seasoned with paprika. Some current versions are significantly more spicy than the original sausages. Use a spicy chorizo blend when making tacos instead of ground beef.
