Recipe Card


  • 12 ounces ground pork or beef chorizo
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 small white onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Red Gold Tomato Love Chili Starter Seasoned Diced + Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can Red Gold Tomato Sauce
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can dark red kidney beans
  • 24 mini flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, for topping
  • 1 cup shredded chihuahua cheese, for topping
  • Chopped green onions, for topping
  • Sour cream, for topping
  • Cilantro, for garnish


  • Step 1

    In a pan on medium heat, cook chorizo until slightly brown, then add the ground beef and cook for 8-10 minutes. Stir in diced onion and green bell pepper.

  • Step 2

    Mix in Red Gold Tomato Love Chili Starter Seasoned Diced + Crushed Tomatoes and Red Gold Tomato Sauce into the pot, along with can of dark red kidney beans. Simmer on medium low heat for 15 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 4

    Grease two cupcake pans (24 total). Warm flour tortillas in the microwave for 1 minute to prevent tearing when placed into the cupcake pan. Place one tortilla in each cupcake slot.

  • Step 5

    Lightly grease the top of each tortilla with a neutral oil (this helps the tortilla crisp in the oven and hold its shape). Bake for 12 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Remove the pans from the oven. Gently remove each tortilla cup and place on a cooling rack.

  • Step 7

    Fill each tortilla cup with the chorizo chili mixture. Top with cheddar cheese, green onions, sour cream, garnish with cilantro before serving.
