½ cup very hot water
1 - 3.7 oz. package Chorizo Spice Blend
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Tequila reposado
2 pounds ground meat: pork, beef, turkey, duck
Stir Chorizo Spice Blend into ½ cup of very hot water, add vinegar and Tequila. Mix well to create a paste. Can be made a day ahead.
Combine 2 pounds of ground meat of your choice with the chile paste in a large bowl. For best results mix by hand until evenly blended. This mixture will stain your hands, try using food prep gloves for this step.
Cover the Chorizo with plastic wrap and let chill overnight, or even a day or two, to fully incorporate the flavors.
Separate into eight portions, 4 ounces each, and place in snack size zipper bags. Great to freeze for future use.
This Mexican style sausage is a real workhorse in the kitchen. Making your own chorizo is well worth the effort and gives you quality control over the fat and flavor content. Enjoy this highly flavored ingredient for snacks, breakfast, brunch and dinner. Use in Queso Flameado, chorizo con papas, breakfast tacos, tostados, meatballs, fideo, empanadas and many more dishes. I told you it's a workhorse!
