We didn’t find these to be super spicy, in spite of the chorizo but added cayenne gives it a kick. Omit the cayenne if you don’t like spice and you’ll be ok. Even the kids will love these.

You can also just saute this meat mixture if you’re planning to make the tacos but don’t feel like going the whole meatball route, and spoon it into the shells. Easy-peasy and super fast!
