OH my this was tasty. Better than I fantacized it to be! How many times has that happened in your life?? I digress, if you like chorizo, try it, you'll LOVE it! I used both flour (as Emeril suggests) and corn tortillas. Pick your favorite, they are both wonderful! You can use large (4) 12" or (8) 6" tortillas. I used a combination of both sizes. This recipes was written using (4) 12-14" tortillas. I used my pizza stone and the results were outstanding. We had this for dinner along with salad, guacamole and chips. It would make a great appetizer as well. Recipe inspired by Emeril Lagasse, he uses the grill for part of this recipe, I did the whole thing in the oven. I am writing the oven friendly version.
