From Jeff Smedstad, Chef and Owner of the Elote Cafe, Sedona, AZ. This recipe includes his recipe for "The Cure" spice rub blend. Once everything is combined, allow the chorizo to cure for 6 hours up to 4 days before cooking. Prep time = making Cure seasoning, prepping & combining all ingredients. Cook time = 6 hour chill time, so plan ahead.
