  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil until shimmering. Add the chorizo and cook over medium heat, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until rendered but not cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the sweet potato and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the edges just start to soften and browned bits form on the bottom of the skillet, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the broth and simmer over medium-low heat, scraping up the browned bits, until the sweet potatoes are tender and the chorizo is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, gently mix the avocado with the onion, chiles, lime juice, and cilantro; season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Serve the chorizo and sweet potato in warm corn tortillas, topped with the avocado salsa and crumbled queso fresco cheese.
