Directions:
1. In a warm pan, add the Chorizo (Mexican type sausage) and the chopped onion. Stir and smash the Chorizo so everything is very well cooked and browned. (You will know this because the chorizo will shrink and look a darker color) (If you are substituting with chicken, fry the onions and add the tortillas. Add the shredded chicken after step 3 )
2. Add oil to fry the tortillas. Flip the tortillas when necessary so that everything is browned and crunchy. Remove excess oil.
3. Add Pace Salsa, 1/4 cup of water (or chicken stock) and diced tomatoes. Stir, making sure everything is covered in salsa. Let simmer for a couple of minutes.
4. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella to taste, add a lid and let melt. Ready to serve!
