I love choizo, but who knows what is in the commercially prepared kind? This homemade Mexican chorizo is delicious with scrambled eggs served in a flour tortilla. I usually prepare this chorizo with ground turkey.

Made this with bear meat and it was great. 3 pounds bear meat and 2 pounds pork belly.
