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!
I love fresh chorizo, but do not love the high fat and calorie count. This was a great alternative. I cut back on the chili powder but otherwise followed the recipe. I used it in a a improvised Mexican pasta bake.
Wonderful flavor and much less fat. Reduced chile powder to 1 T. and omitted red pepper flakes due to allergies, but still had lots of flavor. Used, crumbled, to make burritos. Froze the extras in single servings for lunches, and that's worked well too. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
Made this a couple of weeks ago and forgot to review! I let the flavors marry overnight, then browned it with onions and diced mixed peppers. Once cooked through I added beaten eggs and cooked to our liking. Then I rolled it in tortillas with pepper jack cheese and served with fresh salsa. It was absolutely delicious. (I forgot to say I only used half of the turkey and veggie mixture - froze the other half for another time)
Yummy! I have never had "regular" chorizo, but this was just great. And so versatile! While the turkey "married" the spices overnight, I mulled on how to use it. I ended up cooking it and adding 3 small diced zucchini, 6 oz mushrooms, and a drained can of fire roasted tomatoes, as well as extra spices from the recipe. The mixture is beautiful and tasty and healthy! I will serve this over fried polenta, tortillas, spaghetti squash... Thanks a million Paula!
The flavours in this are spot on! I didn't form into patties...instead I just cooked in a saucepan as you would a taco mince. The uses for this are endless...Taquitos, Taco's, added to scrambled eggs, a filling for quesadilla's, patties for burgers, the list goes on and on! Thanks for sharing, reviewed for the 123 Wonders game :)
Loved this recipe! It is a very good substitute for bought chorizo and MUCH lower in fat and calories. It also is full of flavor. I used part of it in Chorizo and Scrambled Egg Breakfast Tacos and froze the rest in patties for a future meal. Thanks Paula! I will be making this again. Reviewed for ZWT3.
