Soy Chorizo and Potato Tacos

Soy Chorizo and Potato Tacos

This recipe for Soy Chorizo and Potato Tacos is my favorite quick and easy dinners.


If you’re looking for a crowd pleasing recipe, this taco recipe is perfect!

Whether you’re vegan or omnivore, you’ll love these tacos! Over the years, I’ve made these tacos for omnivores and everybody loves them. They can’t believe the tacos are vegan. People always comment that they can’t believe how filling and satisfying the tacos are—especially since they are vegan!

You only need a few ingredients to make the tacos. I always keep a package or two of the soy chorizo from Trader Joe’s in my fridge. When I don’t have a plan for dinner and I find myself looking in the fridge for inspiration, I love seeing a package of soy chorizo in the fridge.


I always get questions on how to cook soy chorizo. It’s so easy to cook! You just want to make sure to remove the plastic casing that the chorizo comes in before cooking.

After you remove the chorizo from the casing, all you need to do is heat it up. That’s it!


Soy chorizo is versatile and can be used in many different recipes. These tacos are my favorite recipe to use the soy chorizo.

I have even made these Soy Chorizo and Potato Tacos while traveling. Last year, we rented a house in Este Park, Colorado and I made the family tacos for dinner!

I like to serve the tacos with warm corn tortillas. You can also add your favorite salsa, some chopped cilantro and diced avocado to your tacos if you’d like too!


To serve alongside the tacos, I highly recommend making a batch of Mexican Red Rice! If you like things a little spicy, chipotle white rice would also be delicious served with the tacos.

I hope that you enjoy this taco recipe as much as my family does!

Delicious and easy!! This was my first time trying soyrizo (I'm a new vegan lol) and I like it better than the meat based version! Definitely a lot less fatty and heavy on the stomach. I made these into tacos and topped it with plant based avocado ranch and cholula, yum!
