Green Chorizo Tacos with Kale and Potatoes

I was looking for something to do with a ham I had from our Meat CSA so decided to make green chorizo, which I had never heard of until watching the finals of Top Chef. It’s a Mexican version of this delicious sausage which made its name in Spain. As opposed to getting red flavor and color from paprika and cayenne, here we get green flavor and color from poblanos, serranos, and parsley. It is super tasty with great heat and it’s pretty easy to make. The fact that it’s from Alex Stupak of Empellon only made it a safer bet to try.

This is great in tacos, but it would also be really good with eggs.
