I did throw some sweet potato “fries” into the oven for 20 minutes before I got started, and everything was ready at exactly the same time. If you happen to have any of this dinner leftover, then I recommend turning it into an epic Huevos Rancheros breakfast the next day, yum! :)

For the Pickled Onions & Peppers

  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño or serrano pepper, trimmed, cut longways, and sliced into thin pieces

For the Wraps

  • 1 pound chorizo sausage (bulk or casings removed)
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 head butter lettuce rinsed and leaves separated

Suggested Toppings

  • crumbled queso fresco
  • sour cream
  • cilantro


For the Pickled Onions & Peppers

  • Bring the vinegar, water, and honey to a boil in a small pot over high heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the sliced onions and peppers. Set aside while you prepare the rest of the meal.

For the Wraps

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the chorizo, occasionally breaking it up with a spatula while it cooks. Once it starts to brown, stir in the beans. Cook until the meat is no longer raw (pink) in the middle.
  • Turn off the heat and pour in the lime juice while scraping up the brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • Drain the onions and peppers, and serve with the meat mixture, lettuce cups, cheese, sour cream, and cilantro.
