Chorizo Picadillo Tacos with Cilantro Lime Crema by Chef Jose Alarcon
If you have not yet dined at Popol Vuh or Centro in Northeast Minneapolis, then get ready to indulge in some of the most satisfying and traditional Latin food in the Midwest. Chef Jose Alarcon’s Chorizo Tacos are inspired by those he serves at his award-winning restaurant. The seasoned chorizo is cooked into a picadillo with crispy potato bites, onions and peas. Served in warm, soft tortillas and topped with fresh, local radishes and a tangy cilantro-lime sour cream. Get cooking and take it easy tonight!
Offering creative and elevated Mexican cuisine, Popol Vuh is directly translated to “book of the People” from its native K’iche.’ It is part creation myth, and in part folklore — a statement of our relationship to the Earth, the animals and the people
with whom we connect and coexist. Popol Vuh focuses on quality ingredients, raw wood fire, and refined but simple preparations. Chef Jose Alarcon uses the seasons and his travels through Mexico to guide the menu. Craft cocktails featuring mezcal and tequila welcome guests with warm hospitality.
Inspired by Chef Jose Alarcon’s Mexican heritage, Centro opened June 2018 in the hip art district of Northeast Minneapolis. With counter service from brunch through late night, it’s a casual place to gather over street tacos and pitchers of margaritas.The vibrant, central bar offers a diverse selection of agave spirits and hand-crafted cocktails.
