Simple recipe to make your own chorizo. Some advance preparation is required. I've used several recipes that required chorizo, and this recipe allows me to save a few bucks, because I can use the beef and pork we have processed every year. You may use half ground beef, half ground pork. From The Hatch Chile Cookbook.
