    PaulaG's Note:

    I was looking to make a lighter version of chorizo with a strong garlic flavor. The original recipe calls for ground pork and not having in I used turkey and made a few additional changes and the result was very good. The Ancho chile will not add alot of heat. It adds a nice rich flavor. The heat can be adjusted to your liking by increasing the red pepper flakes.

      I made the mistake of using ground turkey breast instead of ground turkey. I won't do that again! You definitely need a little bit of fat in the meat. That being said, the flavor of this chorizo was excellent! I used it to make breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs, pico de gallo, jalapeno slices, avocado chunks and pepper jack cheese. Yummy! Thanks for sharing, Paula!

      Great recipe! The first time I made it I followed the recipe to the letter and it was fantastic. The next time I added a little extra garlic and some smoked paprika. I also subbed a 1 TBSP of New Mexico chili powder for 1 TBSP of the ancho powder for a different subtle kick. Thanks so much for this recipe and a great way to enjoy chorizo flavor without the fat & calories. It's awesome with eggs and a little cilantro and green onion. Just like being back home in Texas!
