Author Notes: Spanish chorizo, sweet corn & fried egg tacos. Topped with manchego cheese and baby arugula. Sarah | Wisconsin from Scratch

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 ears sweet corn
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallion (green part only)
  • 2 ounces Spanish chorizo, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1/4 cup baby arugula
  • hot sauce for serving

Directions

  1. Husk the corn, remove the silk, and cut the corn kernels off the cobs into a bowl.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallion and chorizo and cook until scallion is soft and chorizo begins to render, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender and starting to caramelize, about 8-10 minutes. Add the cider vinegar, smoked paprika, and salt and cook 1 minute more. Season to taste with additional salt if needed.
  4. Transfer corn mixture to a separate bowl and wipe pan clean. Add another 1 Tbsp olive oil, and once hot, crack in two of the eggs and fry them in the olive oil. Remove eggs to a plate, and repeat with the remaining 1 Tbsp of oil and other two eggs.
  5. Place 1 egg atop each of the 4 warmed tortillas. Top each with equal amounts of the corn mixture, thinly sliced manchego cheese, and baby arugula leaves. Serve with hot sauce.
