Flavor and texture, it's all about flavor and texture and my take on this dish has an abundance of both!  From the tortillas and crispy chorizo topping to the creamy smooth cheese sauce, the crumbles of queso, and the flavor punch of the red sauce, it's all packed in there!  For a vegetarian option just leave out the Chorizo and it's still a delicious meal!

As if I needed another reason to be thankful for Papa's Pepper, it's like it's made specifically for this Peri-Peri sauce!  Don't believe me?  Try it for yourself and you'll be a believer as well!
