    Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
    1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Line a sheet pan with foil. Transfer the sweet potato wedges to the foil; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the jalapeno sour cream

    Meanwhile, halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the sour cream and as much of the chopped pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper.

    3 Cook & finish the chorizo

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chorizo. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat; add the guajillo chile sauce and stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired

    4 Warm the tortillas

    Meanwhile, if using the microwave, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through. If using the oven, wrap the tortillas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack; warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a work surface and carefully unwrap.
