  • Make "The Cure" spice rub blend. NOTE: You will be using 2 Tablespoons in this recipe. Store the remaining in an airtight container and use whenever a recipe calls for using a rub for your chicken, duck, rabbit, etc.
  • Mix all ingredients together well in a large bowl, kneading as you would for bread dough. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate or uncover to air dry, if you can stand the pungent smell in your fridge. It will allow it to become more flavorful.
  • Allow the mixture to be refrigerated for at least 6 hours or as long as 4 days, so the chorizo ripens.
  • Cook in a frying pan, drain off the excess fat. (*Save the fat for making your own refried beans).
