Turkey Chorizo

READY IN: 12hrs 15mins
Recipe by PaulaG

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 followed the exact recipe. It's okay. I didn't get the sickly sweet black licorice taste from Mexican chorizo. It has that weird white washed south west seasoning taste. It basically tastes like taco seasoning excessively dumped on meat. In my opinion you should try a different recipe if you want that true breakfast burrito taste. I do not suggest this recipe.
