Scramble the eggs with the chorizo, turn off heat, put a lid on it until ready to assemble.

To assemble tacos, heat a griddle pan or skillet to medium heat. Line up as many tortillas that will fit on the pan, flip them after 20 seconds, then layer on 2 tablespoons of Oaxaca cheese, place the second tortilla on top and flip with the new tortilla on the bottom. Heat until cheese has melted between the layers. Take a tortilla, scoop chorizo and pico mixture on top and enjoy.
