Chorizo Tostadas

chorizo tacos

Originally found on the Food Network website, this modified Chorizo Tostadas recipe was excellent and a great alternative to a traditional taco night with ground beef. I found Chorizo ground sausage at my local grocery store but can be bought as sausages in casing as well.
