These tacos get plenty of bold flavor from ground chorizo (a type of Mexican spiced pork sausage), cooked into a delightfully saucy filling with tender cabbage and fresh citrus juices. On the side, we’re livening up roasted potatoes by tossing them with piquant garlic paste and Cotija cheese.

Prepare & roast the potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potatoes lengthwise; cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Carefully transfer the roasted potatoes to a large bowl. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the potatoes roast, cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Halve the orange; squeeze the juice into a bowl. Cut off and discard the ends of the radishes; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and finely chop the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the crème fraîche, the juice of 1 lemon wedge, and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper to taste.

3 Make the filling:

While the potatoes continue to roast, in a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chorizo; season with salt and pepper. Cook, frequently breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Add the sliced cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the orange juice and 1/2 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes, or until the cabbage is softened and the chorizo is cooked through. Turn off the heat and stir in the juice of 2 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Warm the tortillas:
4 Warm the tortillas:

While the filling cooks, stack the tortillas on a large piece of aluminum foil; tightly wrap to seal. Place directly onto the oven rack and warm 5 to 7 minutes, or until heated through and pliable. Transfer to a work surface and carefully unwrap.
